The obverse side honors a piece of history with an image of the Cuauhxicalli Eagle Bowl or the Aztec Calendar Stone. Today we marvel at the detail of this calendar the Aztecs used. The craftsmanship of the original design was spectacular in the intricate detail of the images portrayed. This coin does a fantastic job capturing much of this detail. Under the bowl is ‘VEINTE PESOS’. Under this is the weight in purity in Spanish.
On the reverse side of the coin is Mexico’s National Coat of Arms. This image recreates the scene the Aztecs came upon where they witnessed a Mexican Gold Eagle with a rattlesnake in its mouth. They believed this was a sign that told them this was where they needed to build their great city. That city became Mexico City. Here is the eagle standing on a cactus using its beak and claws to subdue the snake. Above the image is ‘ESTRADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS’ which means the United States of Mexico.
