The crisis of 1943
In 1943, during the Second World War, Mexico was again faced with an acute shortage of fractional coinage, especially the 50c denomination. To relieve this situation the government authorised the banks and local Chambers of Commerce to issue cheques with the printed denominations of twenty-five and fifty centavos.
