Comments

2008 - 2010 mintages are considerably lower because those were the years the commemorative coins were released (Centennial of the Revolution and Bicentennial of Independence series).  The mintage for these standard 5 Pesos coins was reduced to nearly a tenth of the normal years, making them more difficult to find and usually more expensive than the commemorative coins of the same years.

Varieties exist:
Obverse: Larger vs. smaller design features, the thickness of the font on Obv.,  with and without decoration of Serpant's tales above date and '5' of denomination on Rev.
