Mexico 1951 centavo rev DSLR.jpg

In 1949, the mint suspended the production of bronze centavos and in 1950 introduced this brass centavo of reduced weight. It was struck every year during 1950-69 and all dates are readily available altho assembling a set of unspotted specimens is a challenge. The superseding design (KM 418) was reduced to 1.5 grams.

Recorded mintage: 25,740,000.

Specification: 2 g, brass, 16 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: KM 417.
