It is a Mexican coin. The motto reads in English "United States of Mexico". The eagle biting the snake refers to an Aztec legend about the founding of the Aztec capital city.

BlkHawk is right. It's 2 pesos. Last I heard the exchange rate was $1 US to $10 Mexico. So this is about 20 cents US.

thank you , you helped me understand what it means thanks
