Mexico Gold Coins
Mexico has a rich tradition of issuing gold coins, including both bullion coins and collectors items. The coin shown here is a One Thousand Peso coin, shown as $1,000 on the coin itself. It weighs one troy ounce, and is made of .999 fine gold. This particular coin is a single year design, and shows a stylised Jaguar's head

Pre - Columbian Series - Stone of the Suns - Jaguar
In 1992, the Mexican Mint commenced a series of commemorative gold and silver coins, to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the discovery by Christopher Columbus, featuring designs from pre-Columbian Mexico. The 1992 coins take their designs from a stone, the Stone of Suns, or Piedra de las Soles. This apparently has four faces, each representing one of the first four suns. It seems that in Aztec mythology, there were 4 previous suns before the current one. The Jaguar also represents the earth's fertility, and possibly the fourth sun.
