|Vallarta Tribune||Mexico Releases a New Coin|
|Aug. 24, 2013|
The bank of Mexico has released a new 20 peso coin. It is very similar to the 10 peso coin so be aware! The differences lie in the size and the designs on the coin.
There are three designs used on the new 20 peso coin. The first celebrating 100 years of the Mexican Army with a stylized image of a soldier in a helmet, the second is a representation of Octavio Paz, Nobel Laureate for Literature in 1990 and the third design features a younger profile of Paz with the inscription Todo es presencia, todos los siglos son este presente. (Everything has presence; every century is today’s present).
