This coin is graded PR69 by the PCGS, which means it’s in near-perfect condition. To protect that condition, it ships in a plastic slab. Near-perfect coins have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor flaws. These flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside the primary fields. DCAM coins have strong, frosted designs with deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
The original design for the Huehueteotl coin was created for proof and bullion coins issued in 1992. This particular coin had an original 100-peso denomination. However, Mexican coin reforms changed the denomination requirements, so when the proof coins were issued in 1993, they were issued with the same design and one minor change: The denomination inscribed on the coin was 5 new pesos.
