Mexican 50 Pesos gold bullion coin, called the Centenario. 1.2 ounces of gold. Image of Winged Victory of Mexican Independence on the front of the coin with years "1891" and "1947," and the Mexican Coat of Arms on the reverse.
The Centenario is a Mexican gold bullion coin first minted in 1921 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mexico's independence from Spain. Production restarted in 1943 due to the demand for gold coins, and coins minted between 1949 and 1972 are usually marked "1947". This particular coin is likely a restrike from years 2005-2006, based on its matte finish.
