1846, Mexico, (FIRST REPUBLIC), 2 Reales
Obverse: Star,2R.Go (Guadalajara).1846.P.M.10.D.20G.
Reverse: REPUBLIA MEXICO, Golden Eagle killing rattlesnake while perched on cactus.
KM# 374.8
The Golden Eagle is Mexico's national bird, but the image on Mexican coins was taken from
pre-Colombian art.  In 1960, the Mexican ornithologist Rafael Martín del Campo identified
the eagle in the pre-Hispanic codex as the northern caracara or "quebrantahuesos",
a species common in Mexico (although the name "eagle" is taxonomically incorrect, as the caracara
is in the falcon family).  Italic taken from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_arms_of_Mexico
