Mexico 20-CENTAVOS (KM440) 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, including three large bronze issues that are very similar in design. This is the second of the three bronze coins.
