A 12-sided, 20-peso coin preps to make its debut

A new 12-sided 20-peso coin honoring revolutionary Emiliano Zapata will be in circulation this spring.

The coin will include the phrase “Tierra y Libertad” (Land and Freedom), under which Zapata’s army of the south marched during the Mexican Revolution.


The center of the coin will be 65-percent copper, 10-percent nickel and 25-percent zinc, while the surrounding area will be bronze and aluminum. The face of the coin will depict a bust of Zapata, which is yet to be decided.
