Set Description:

20th Century 5 Centavos (Copper-Nickel) 1936-1942

A very short 5 year series. The design is very similar to an equivalent 10 centavos coin minted around the same time period.

At the time of issue, this was not a very popular coin. Most 5 centavos coins minted up to this time period were copper and circulated quite extensively, however this coin did not circulate as much leaving most specimens available in high grade.

The design is very detailed using Aztec Pre-Columbian design motifs. The issue is very common and all dates are easily available in BU and can be purchased for very reasonable prices. The key dates in the series is 1938 and will cost a bit more in high grade.

This Registry set is relatively new and only has 3 sets as of 11/2018. Hopefully it will grow with time as more collectors come to appreciate these beautiful coins.
