Many of Mexico's Finest Specimen & Proof Banknotes


Mexico achieved its independence from Spain in 1821, and a republic was established the following year. The country has a particularly large variety of specialized issues, owing to the fact that Mexico had approximately 50 commercial banks that printed their own banknotes. Some of the more prolific of these commercial banks were Durango, Hidalgo, San Luis Potosi, Sonora, Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Yucatan, and Zacatecas. Many of the notes from the commercial banks have outstanding designs and colors. Most of the banknotes from the Revolutionary Era (1910-17) that were issued by state, regional, and military authorities, are not nearly so colorful.


The PMG world banknote population report shows that a high percentage of the early Mexican banknotes in upper grades are proof and specimen examples. Many of the high-denomination banknotes are particularly scarce. Some issues have large number of remainder (unissued) notes available.
