You have a $1000 pesos coin from Mexico, struck from 1988 to 1992 and listed under the Standard Catalog of World Coins as KM#536. It's made of an alloy of aluminium and bronze, and depicts Sor Juana(also known as Juana de Asbaje) who was a nun and scholar in the 17th century, while the coat-of-arms of Mexico is featured on the other side. The coin has a minimum collector value of US$2.25 in uncirculated condition, down to $1.25 in grade nice circulated with sharp details and luster, and $0.85 in average circulated condition. This $1000 pesos is an obsolete coin and not at par with the current Mexican money. In 1993, Mexico revalued its Peso, introduced the Nuevo Peso, and removed the last two zeros from all its old peso currency.
