in steemsilvergold •  2 months ago

I’ve always been drawn to the Aztec Calendar. Maybe it’s the indigenous blood coursing through my veins.

Or maybe it’s the novelty. It’s presented so differenly from our Gregorian calendar. In any case it’s prominently displayed on this 20 Peso Mexican Gold coin.

Oro is spanish for gold. Spanish, is of course a Romance language. Oro coumes from the latin... aurum. Why the difference in spelling? Well historically most people were illiterate and language was spread by hearing, then speaking.

Here’s The other side of this beauty.

Most excellent! Love the Mexican coat of arms as well.

But wait, there’s more...the edge lettering.

I just read about Aztec Calender for the first time. Thank you for posting👏👏

I love Mexican coinage and this one is at the top of my want list.

Yeah, I love the Aztec calendar as well. Edge lettering is my favorite!!! That coin is sweet!

A beautiful Viente! It is in my list after the 1oz Gold Onza. I wonder if I will still be alive by then.

Now that is a fricken awesome coin, I would like to have one someday!

A marvelous coin. Shiny and precious.

Love that coin. Have been eyeing it numerous times. Just haven’t had the funds to pull the trigger yet.

I really like the looks the coins from Mexico and this one is no different. How much gold is in it if you don't mind me asking?
