A Little Bit of History
The Cinco Peso silver Mexican coin is the coin used to make the Texas Ranger badge. One reason it was chosen was for its high silver content. Tradition states that when a new Texas Ranger is commissioned, a current Ranger is dispatched to retrieve a Cinco(5) Peso coin for the new Ranger's badge. The coin is then sent to the licensed jeweler to have the badge made.
