The Aztec Empire was a short-lived, but powerful military alliance that ruled what is now southern Mexico from 1428 to 1521. The final emperor of this alliance was Cuauhtemoc, a man who rose to the ultimate position of power in 1520 as the Spanish Conquistadors closed in on the capital city. In 1947, the Mexican Mint honored him with a left-profile bust on a 5 Peso silver coin. Today, 5 Pesos Silver Mexican Cuauhtemoc Silver Coins from 1947-1948 are available to you online at Silver.com.
