The Mexican peso is considered the 3rd most traded currency in our world today, where $1.00 in pesos is equal to 58 cents in the United States dollar. Governed by the Bank of Mexico, the peso has had quite a long historical journey to where it has come in currency standards in iur modern day. The currency first began in 1863 where it was considered Spanish dollars; However, at that point in time, it was only coins being traded that were called centavos. It wasn’t until 1866 when the name switches to peso. After the country’s fall into debt, it was decided to recreate the currency, thus on January 1st of 1993, the “Nuevo Peso” was established. Finally, in January of 1996, the “Nuevo” was dropped on the coins and notes in circulation, leaving the peso which is what is still used today.
The coins and bank notes in circulation in the country are somewhat different from that of the United States. Coins frequently used include 50 cent, $1, $2, $5, and $10, while rarely using 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, and $20. The bank notes are also different from what we typically see; peso bank notes used most commonly are $20, $50, $100, $200, and $500.
