1998 Aguila (Eagle) Pre Columbian 100 Pesos 1oz BU. 999 Fine MEXICO GOLD
THE PRE-COLUMBIAN COINAGE PROGRAM OF MEXICO. At the American Numismatic Association's Convention in Baltimore on July 28, 1993 The Banco de Mexico held a press conference to announce the beginning of a new commemorative coinage program. This new program would be known as "The Pre-Columbian Coin program". This event was to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus discovery of the Americas in 1492. This series of commemorative coins will honor six Pre - Columbian civilizations: the Aztec, Central Veracruz, Mayan, Olmec, Teotihuacan, and the Toltec cultures.
Uction is for 1 Brilliant Uncirculated. Each coin is hand picked from my collection and represents a superior collectors example worthy and capable of being certified by one of the premiere grading organizations. This series is considered extremely low mintage for a modern commemorative series. They are getting extremely difficult to find for sale and are becoming a much sought after series. As with all coins, rarity and condition along with collector demand determine value.
