The 5000 peso coin is a commemorative coin of Mexico that was minted in 1988. It was issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of oil expropriation in Mexico.

The coin is composed of cupronickel (75% copper, 25% nickel), weighs 17.4 grams, and measures 33.5 millimeters in diameter and 2.6 millimeters in thickness. Its edge is reeded. The coat of arms of Mexico is featured on the obverse, with the state title of the country (ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS) inscribed above. A monument from the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City is depicted on the reverse. Above the monument is the word "CINCUENTENARIO", which translates into "50th anniversary", and below are the dates "1938-1998", the logo of the Casa de Moneda de México (Mexican Mint), and a legend reading "EXPROPIACION PETROLERA" ("oil expropriation"). Flanking the image to the left is the coin's value, vertically-inscribed, and flanking it to the right is the date "1988". A total of 50,000,000 examples were produced.
