In earlier times, the USA used the Mexican currency widely in its country. In the year 1785, the value of the Mexican currency matched with that of the United States dollar approximately. The calculation was made based on the amount and value of the silver in the coins. It was not until the year 1792 that USA began issuing its own coins and till then the peso was used as currency. In fact, till the year 1854, peso was used as legal tender in Canada, along with other foreign coins because the country did not have its own currency. The Mexican peso was so widely recognized that it served as a model for the Hong Kong dollar, the Straits dollar, the Chinese Yuan and Japanese yen.
