Mexico 5-CENTAVOS (KM425)

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 coin was minted in 1950 only, and it shrunk back to 20.5 mm and returned to copper-nickel (like KM423)
