NEWMEXICAN REVOLUTION - PANCHO VILLA OVERPRINT ON CARRANZA NOTE

Mexico 1 Peso 1914 overprinted note
These hundred-year-old banknotes served on both sides of the Mexican Revolution. They were originally printed September 1914 in Mexico City under the authority of Constitutionalist government of Venustiano Carranza.  In December 1914 Carranza and his government was forced to flee the capital due to the approaching forces of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata.  After taking control of Mexico City, Villa had the Carranza banknotes overprinted in red “REVALIDADO Por Decreto de 17 de Diciembre de 1914” (Revalidated by Decree of December 17, 1914).  Villa was then forced from the city in early 1915, leaving behind this numismatic legacy of the Mexican Revolution.  All denominations have the same design. The front of the notes features the Eagle and Snake on a island in Lake Texcoco with the Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl volcanoes in the background.  To the left is Liberty seated holding an olive branch and shield.  The backs feature a Mexican silver Peso dated 1908.

AZTEC BALL PLAYER ON MEXICAN OLYMPIC SILVER COIN  Restocked

Mexico 25 Pesos 1968 XIX Olympic Summer Games, KM465Mexico issued this silver 25 Pesos dated 1968 to celebrate the XIX Summer Olympic Games held in Mexico City that year.  The coin depicts an Aztec or Mayan playing a Meso-American ball game called Ollamaliztli. Behind the player is the outline of the game court.  The game was played with a hard rubber ball that weighed as much as 9 pounds (4 kg.).  The ball was not allowed to touch the ground and was to be kept in play.  The goal was to knock the ball through one of two stone hoops without using hands. It rarely happened, so points could be scored or penalties given by other play as well.  It was a fast paced game in which players had to throw themselves against the surface of the court to keep the ball from hitting the ground. As might be expected injuries were common. The stakes were high due to extensive wagering (people would wager themselves or their children into slavery), and in some cases, the losing team would be sacrificed to the gods.  Beneath the ball player are the five interlocking Olympic rings.  The obverse features the Mexican eagle eating a snake.  The 38mm coin is struck in .720 fine silver and contains .5175 troy ounces of silver.
Item MX-25P MEXICO SILVER 25 PESOS 1968 OLYMPICS KM479 UNC. $16.00
