The reverse of 1/2 oz Aztec Calendar Rounds shows a portrait of Aztec emperor Cuauhtémoc. He was the Aztec’s final ruler, and when he came into power, this civilization was already being ravaged by both Spanish invaders and smallpox. His name is inscribed below the portrait.

Despite its name, the Aztec Calendar Stone was not actually a calendar. Rather, it was an intricate stone carving depicting the Aztec creation myth. Some scholars believe it was a ceremonial piece or even an altar used for Aztec sun god, Tonatiuh. It is also widely thought that the face depicted in the very center of the stone belongs to this deity. While the Calendar Stone was never officially completed, it is still full of remarkable and ornate details, most of which have survived to this day.
