About the Mexican Peso

The Mexican Peso is commonly represented by its currency code (MXN) and in its symbol form ($). Did you know that Mexico actually used the $ symbol before the United States? However in some places you might see it referred to as MX$ or $100 MN (MN stands for Moneda Nacional, or National Currency) helping you to differentiate the peso with the dollar.


The Mexican Peso coin is made up of 100 Mexican cents; or centavos. The most popular banknotes are $50, $100 and $200, but rarer $20, $500 and $1,000 notes do exist. Coins are minted in 5, 10, 20 and 50 centavos, although those under 50 centavos are rarely seen now. You can also use $1, $2, $5 and $10 coins, which are quite handy when you are paying for taxi fares and smaller tips.
