Mexico 20-PESOS (KM508) 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.
A brass coin issued from 1985 to 1990. That's Guadalupe Victoria on the reverse. He was a soldier in the fight for independence against Spain, and later became the first President of Mexico (1824-1829).
