Carved from a massive block of basalt stone in the early 16th century, the Aztec sun stone is an impressive design that showcases the calendar of the ancient Aztec Empire and the Mexica culture. The actual stone itself that this design is based on is 141 inches across, 39 inches thick, and weighs an astonishing 54,210 lbs.
The design on the opposite side of these bars is also inspired by real life. Cuauhtemoc was the final emperor of the Aztec Empire and ruler of the city of Tenochtitlan. He was captured by the Spanish conquistadors sacking the city in August 1521 and eventually executed four years later by Spaniards under the leadership of Hernan Cortes.
Reverse side of the 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Bars includes the replica of the Aztec sun stone. The ornate circular design tracks the days and years of the Aztec lunar cycle. The stone tracks the 52-year, 365-day cycle of the Aztec solar calendar with 18 distinct 20-day cycles. Years, days, and periods of time on the calendar are given a name and number identification rather than the modern month of the year and day of the month system.
Obverse features of the 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Bars bear the portrait of Cuauhtemoc in left-profile relief. This design captures his effigy with a feathered headdress and ornate plumage on his head as well as decorative armor on his upper chest and shoulders with earrings in his ears.
These 1 oz Aztec Calendar Silver Bars are available as brand-new products of the Golden State Mint (GSM). Each individual bar ships inside of a plastic flip while multiples of 20 are available in mint tubes.
