The peso is the currency of Mexico. The peso was the first currency in the world to use the "$" sign, which the United States dollar later adopted for its own use when the United States adopted the peso as currency during a period before adopting the dollar. The peso is the 12th most traded currency in the world and by far the most traded currency in Latin America and third most traded in all the Americas. The current ISO 4217 code for the peso is MXN; prior to the 1993 revaluation, the code MXP was used. The peso is subdivided into 100 centavos, represented by "¢". The name was originally used in reference to pesos oro (gold weights) or pesos plata (silver weights). The literal English translation of the Spanish word peso is weight. This 20 Mexican peso coin represents young portrait of Octavio Paz with a three quarter profile; on the right the inscription “Todo es presencia, todos los siglos son este presente” (Everything is presence, all centuries are the present one) (on three lines) taken from the author’s poem “Fuente” (Source) about the change of millennium (the years 2000 and 2001), when the coin was minted. The poet and essayist’s signature appears in the lower part.
