  1. Found this at the Worthpoint site for an identical coin that was sold through them. No idea what it went for. Appears 1000 minted. Wonder how credible their research is? Thanks for the Kitco lead. "AZTEC CALENDAR 5 OZ COIN (MEXICAN MINT) Silver Bullion | Aztec Calendar 5 oz Coin (Mexican Mint) This is a very special Aztec Calendar five ounces 0.999 fineness Silver Proof Coin. (Only 1000 ever minted and very few in Australia) This great coin represents a real masterpiece from the Casa de Moneda de M?xico. (Mexican Mint) The obverse consists of the Aztec Calendar or Sun Stone with the legend PIEDRA DE LOS SOLES and MEXICO TENOCHTITLAN 1478. The reverse consists of a very old screw press used in the first years of the Mexican Mint along with the specifications of the coin. weigh (155.515 g) or 5 Troy Ounces of Silver fineness (LEY 0.999) Diameter 65 mm. Brilliant and Uncirculated condition in protective acrylic capsule."
  2. I too have searched high and low with no satisfaction. It can be frustrating. I read through numerous Spanish reviews on the coin but alas no mintage numbers. I noticed that there are a lot of BU coins using this Aztec Calendar, appears this might have been the original coin where all this started.
  3. Is there anyone who knows how many of these were minted? Found some information any thing else would help; "This coin was awarded as the "most beautiful commemorative coin" in Busan, Korea 2008. It has the Aztec calendar on the front, with the legend “Mexico Tenochtitlan 1478”. Tenochtitlan was the Aztec capital city, it was located in what now is Mexico City. On the back of the coin there is the image of a coin press, one the original instruments used by the Casa de Moneda de Mexico to mint coins." "The “Sun Stone” is one of the most famous Aztec sculptures, the original sculpture weighs around 24 tons and has a diameter of 11.75 ft. It’s believed to have been carved around 1501 and it currently sits in the Aztec hall of the Anthropology Museum of Mexico City. Although the exact meaning of the “Sun Stone” has been subject to multiple theories and discussion, it´s one of the most representative remaining sculptures of the Aztecs, the greatest and last pre-hispanic empire in America."
