Comments

According to "Banco de México" and "Diario oficial de la Federación" (Federation's Official Log), 1987 date for this coin presented several inconsistencies, such as defective alloy which caused the coin's design to change when struck. This was detected at Mint, and most of the near 82 million coins where rejected and destroyed before leaving the Mint house. Only the final batches with the corrected alloy reached public. An estimate is that only 1% of 1987 5$ coins ever circulated. This is still a large -near a million- coins that reached circulation, but when compared to the over 100 million coins from the other two years they certainly become scarce and rare to find.
