In an effort to save some 300 million pesos in production and energy costs, Banco de México has begun circulating new metal 10, 20 and 50-centavo coins. These new, smaller coins are made from a stainless steel alloy instead of copper, zinc and nickel alloys. The new coinage 10, 20 and 50 centavo coins will also have a longer life.
We’re still awaiting the final say from the citizens on whether they like these new coins or not, but so far, the reception has been lukewarm.
