Mexico 1-PESO (KM409.3) Northern Caracara
The Golden Eagle is the official bird and symbol of Mexico, and its imagery dates back to pre-Colombian codices of the Aztecs. However, it is very likely that the actual bird is the Northern Caracara, a falcon.
Boasting over three-quarters of an ounce of silver, this single peso coin is a testament to inflation. In 1992, Mexico introduced the 'New Peso' which was equal to 1,000 old pesos.
This coin is from the end of the Second Republic period.
