Mexico Fifty Pesos

Before the Krugerrand was introduced in 1967, one of the few large world bullion coins was the 50 Pesos from Mexico. This was issued from 1921 to 1947, although close to 4 million more were issued between 1949 and 1972 which were almost certainly all dated 1947.
It is interesting to note that the 1943 coin has got a slightly different design. The weight is repeated on the left and right of the figure, and the denomination in omitted. We do not know whether this was an error, but it only occurs on coin of this one year.
