Mexico 5-CENTAVOS (KM427) 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.
This previous 5 centavos coin (KM426, 1942-1955) was replaced with this smaller type, which was minted from 1970 to 1976.
