The Aztec Calendar Stone features in the obverse design of Silver Aztec Calendar Rounds. The edges are full of beautiful decorative patterns, and towards the middle, there is a sun pointing in the four cardinal directions. In the very center, we see a face historians suspect belongs to Tonatiuh, a solar deity. The face has been enhanced to include greater detail in comparison to the original stonework.

If you visit Mexico City today, you will find a marvelous place full of beautiful Christian architecture. However, prior to the 1500s, this region looked much different. It was governed by the Aztec Empire, an advanced civilization full of structures rivaling the Pyramids in their complexity. The Aztec Empire also produced stunning works of art, some of which have survived to this day. One example is the Calendar Stone, a giant disk that traces the cosmological order of the Aztec culture. Today, this incredible historical artifact is on view at the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City.
