2008 Aztec Calendar

#1 Unread post by mhonzell » Fri Feb 02, 2018 11:09 pm

What can I say? ... I'm a sucker for these two coins.
I've been looking for the first year issue of the Mexico 2008 Aztec Calendar (kilo) coin since I purchased the 2014 Libertad (kilo) in 2016.
I finally found one that was available, in Norway. It was a little pricey as it was over 10,000... (kr, that is.)

Diameter: 110 mm.
Weight: 1 kg (35.27 ounces)

Here's a size comparison, in case you forgot...

[Plastic container is a little scratched, but the coin is perfect. Need to get some gloves to take it out for a photo.]

And, all important packaging...
