The Aztec Sun Stone, or Calendar Stone, has emerged as one of the most sought-after bullion designs in 2019, captivating both investors and collectors alike. This series of Aztec-themed designs encompasses copper rounds, silver coins, and silver bars, all adorned with the iconic imagery of the Sun Stone. In its latest iterations, the addition of 1 oz and 5 oz silver bar weights enriches an already impressive array of options available to discerning enthusiasts.

Bar Highlights:

  • Each bar is individually encased in a protective flip or available in tubes containing 20 bars, ensuring both preservation and convenience.
  • The design showcases the stunning imagery of the Aztec Sun Stone in exquisite detail, meticulously crafted on a 1 oz silver bar.
  • Comprised of 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver, offering a blend of intrinsic value and artistic elegance.
  • The obverse side features a portrayal of Cuauhtemoc, the final emperor of the Aztec Empire and ruler of Tenochtitlan.
  • On the reverse, the intricate design of the Aztec Sun Stone is masterfully rendered, paying homage to the rich cultural heritage of the Mexica civilization.

Carved from a monumental block of basalt stone during the early 16th century, the Aztec Sun Stone stands as a testament to the ingenuity and sophistication of ancient Aztec civilization. Measuring 141 inches across, 39 inches thick, and weighing an astonishing 54,210 lbs, this monumental artifact remains a symbol of cultural legacy and artistic achievement.

The depiction of Cuauhtemoc on the reverse side adds a poignant historical dimension to these silver bars. As the last sovereign ruler of the Aztec Empire, Cuauhtemoc's legacy is intertwined with the tumultuous period of Spanish conquest and colonial expansion. His capture by the Spanish conquistadors in 1521, followed by his eventual execution under the command of Hernan Cortes, marks a pivotal chapter in the history of Mesoamerica.
