Mexico

Mexico, some older coins,

1) 1 Peso 1903 and 2) 8 Reales 1894
Mexico first issued decimal coinage in 1864, however the 8 reales was re-introduced from 1873 to circulate alongside the Peso as the decimal coin was found to be much less acceptable for Chinese trade.
3) 5000 Pesos 1988, commemorating 50th years of a nationalised oil industry, inflation having made the peso rather valueless.
4) 20 Pesos, of the new revalued Peso coinage, first issued in 1993.  The 20 and 50 Pesos orginally had
silver centres, something of an oddity - the only other modern circulating silver coin being the 200 Forint of Hungary issued in 1993/1994.

That's a nice group!  I have a few Mexico coins--mostly overdates and other varieties.

Currently 10 Peso is highest circulating coin.
20 Peso is a denomination reserved for circulating commemoratives.
Since 2013, Mexico has issued 5 different 20 Peso commemorative coins.
Mexico plans to introduce a circulation coin of 20 Peso, perhaps by 2018 when it redesigns its series.
It plans to reduce number of denominations to 6 only.

Interestingly 10, 20 and 50 cent coins have same size specifications as centre of 1, 2 and 5 Peso coins.

100 Peso coins were in use before demonetisation.
Now 100 Peso coins are NCLT
