The Mexican Peso was based on Spain’s official currency, the silver dollar and still uses the symbol $ today. It is one of the oldest currencies in North America. Mexico carried on using the peso as its official currency after winning independence from Spain in 1821. As late as 1850, the peso was used as currency in the United States, and was legal tender in both the US and Canada.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15.  Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
