If you’re captivated by Central American culture, the Aztec sun stone housed in the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City is undoubtedly a prized artifact. Carved around 1500, this stone holds deep significance as it represents the origins of the cosmos and the Aztec understanding of the universe. Now, you can own the 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Rounds available for purchase online at BullionMax.
Also referred to as the Aztec calendar stone, this historic artifact holds immense significance in Aztec heritage. Weighing over 24 tons, the stone measures an impressive 12 feet in diameter and over 3 feet in thickness. Following the Spanish conquest of Mexico and the Aztec Empire, the stone was buried in the heart of ancient Mexico City. It was rediscovered during repairs to the Mexico City Cathedral in December 1790.
Every 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Round listed here can be purchased individually or in bulk packaging. Individual rounds are securely housed in protective plastic flips, while bulk options include tubes containing 20 rounds or boxes containing 500 rounds.
The obverse side of these 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Rounds faithfully replicates the mesmerizing designs of the Aztec sun stone. These intricate patterns are arranged in a circular fashion, resembling the sun, with the face of Tonatiuh, the Aztec solar deity, at the center. Tonatiuh holds a human heart in each hand and is encircled by 20 symbols representing the days of the month in the Aztec calendar.
On the reverse of the 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Round, you will find a left-profile bust of Cuauhtemoc, the last emperor of the Aztec Empire. His reign was short-lived, lasting only one year. By the time Cuauhtemoc assumed power, the capital city of Tenochtitlan had already been destabilized by Spanish conquistadors. Following the deaths of Moctezuma II and his brother, Cuauhtemoc was elected leader by the noblemen. This design depicts him wearing the headdress and earring typical of Aztec nobility.
The Aztec Calendar Silver Rounds are produced by the Golden State Mint, a distinguished private American minting company founded in 1974. The Golden State Mint offers an expanding range of gold, silver, and copper rounds.
