The Veinte Peso, or 20 peso, coin is arguably the most unusual and beautiful of the Mexican pesos coins as it gives the appearance of a highly detailed coin sitting upon another coin

The 20 pesos coin contains exactly 15 grams of pure Gold which is confirmed by the coin's inscription '15 Gr. Oro Puro'. The design on the coin is the Aztec Sun Stone which is linked to human sacrifice

The center of the design represents the Tonatiuh, or sun God. The protruding tongue is said to represent thirst for blood and sacrifice. There are four additional suns around the center face, representing the five suns of the Aztec people

The five suns illustrate how the Aztec people believe the world was created with four Gods serving as the sun prior to our current 'fifth sun'. The Aztecs believed human sacrifice was required to keep the fifth sun from disappearing due to the threat of the moon Goddess

Cinco Pesos Gold coins are 90% fine Gold and have a diameter of 19mm. The Banco de Mexico issued the coins between 1905 and 1955, however, most coins are restrikes dated 1955, hence why most coins seen today are in excellent condition
