Comments

Discontinued denomination coin, but still with legal tender. It was discontinued because banks wouldn't request it from Mexico City Mint anymore, as it was nearly useless already.

 1999-2002 issues are considerably rarer due to the lowered mintage number because of the aforementioned reason. The 2002 one is considered the rarest of the four dates because it was never sent to banks, so the only way to get one is as part of the 2002 Mint sets. Although there are some loose ones that did circulate, it is nearly impossible finding one of those as no-one uses them anymore, so they don't move from their current holders.
