Mexico 20-CENTAVOS (KM438) 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.

Between 1905 and 1984, Mexico issued nine different 20-centavos coins. This silver piece is the fourth version, issued from 1920 through 1943.
