                      Some common questions about the Mexican Peso

                      Mexican Pesos are the official currency of Mexico, you’ll often see them abbreviated to MXN. The Peso was the first currency to make use of the $ sign and to differentiate Pesos from US Dollars, you may also see them referred to as MX$ or $MN.

                      Each Peso is made up of 100 Centavos (¢) and the banknotes start at a relative highly denomination, with a $20 bill being the smallest and $1,000 the largest. $50, $100, $200 and $500 notes are also available. Coins range from 5¢, 10¢, 20¢ and 50¢ to $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100.

                      $20 and $50 banknotes are printed in polymer while the rest of notes are printed on cotton paper.

                        Only Mexico recognises Mexican Pesos as an official currency. Some towns on the border of Mexico and Southern US will accept Pesos, but there’s no guarantee. You may also be able to spend US Dollars in Mexico.

                          Mexico’s currency was based on Spanish currency, which was called Reale. The name Peso comes from the silver 8-reale coins issued by Spain in Mexico, which were also nicknamed ‘pieces of eight’ in the UK. Mexico kept the name when it gained independence from Spain in 1821.

                          The influence of the Spanish empire means that there are quite a few countries that use Pesos as the name for their currencies, including Argentina, Chile, Columbia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Philippines and Uruguay.
