The obverse design features the Mexican coat of arms, an eagle clutching a snake while it perches on a prickly pear cactus. On the outer periphery is the phrase “ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS” or as translated to english “United Mexican States”.
The reverse design features a wreath tied off with a bow at the bottom, the denomination “20C” within and year of issue at the top. All coins were minted at the Mexico City Mint and display a “Mo” mint mark just below the bow.
General Market Notes
Of the two years minted, the 1920 issue is the more expensive of the two due to its lower mintage. It is hard to go wrong with acquiring an example from either year. Being a two year only issue, these coins are always in demand and sell quickly when available at a fair price.
