Held in her other hand is a broken chain. The wreath symbolizes victory and freedom to self-govern. The broken chain represents a break from servitude. To the left of the image is ‘50 PESOS’. The right of the pictures is the weight and purity in Spanish. At the bottom of the coin is the date of issue.
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.
