A deep dive on pesos

The design of the Mexican peso is similar to that of the Spanish dollar, and until 1857 was actually considered legal tender in the USA. In 1993, the Bank of Mexico introduced the Nuevo peso (New peso) to help combat years of inflation and devaluation. 1,000 Old pesos became 1 New peso and in 1996 “Nuevo” was dropped from the name and now the currency is referred to as just the Mexican peso (MXN).

More info about pesos

The most commonly used bills for Mexican pesos are the $20, $50, $100, $200, $500 and $1000. The most commonly used coins are $1, $2, $5, $10 and $50. It’s a good idea to try to hold on to small change as sometimes it will be difficult to get larger bills broken.
