More on the Aztec Warrior

The Aztec empire’s rapid expansion central Mexico was driven by the might of its warriors.

There is some disagreement about the status of warriors in Aztec society. Could a successful Aztec warrior become a part of the nobility or was that class only accessible through heredity?

Historians say that there were “societies” within the Aztec army – groups of knights that held a high rank and a high place in society. The largest (and today most well known) of these were the Jaguars (ocelomeh) and Eagles (quauhtin). Men in these societies would wear uniforms representative of these animals.

Sometimes they would wear wood helmets with the insignia of their order. Higher classes wore bright featherwork, quilted cotton armour, mantles of blue (tlahuiztli suits). The higher the rank, the more elaborate the costume. Aztec warriors could also carry flowers, a privilege normally reserved for the nobles.

The coin features the design found on the Aztec Sun Stone which is currently on display at Mexico City’s National Anthropology Museum. In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, it is called the tonalpohualli or, the day-count. The tonalpohualli is considered to be the sacred calendar that is divided into 260 days. It is primarily thought to be a divinatory tool that separates the days and rituals between the gods. This was a critical function in the Aztec culture. Aztecs believed the world would come to an end without this guide that controlled the divine forces that competed for power According to Aztec cosmology, the universe’s delicate is in constant danger of being disrupted by shifting powers of the gods and of the elemental forces that influence our lives.

Surprisingly, there is more than just one Aztec calendar. Another calendar, called the xiuhpohualli, has 365 days. It describes the days and rituals related to the seasons. It is thought to be a guide to the agricultural or the solar year.

The Aztec sun stone is perhaps the most famous work of Aztec sculpture. It measures 141 in diameter, is 39 inches thick, and weighs about 21.8 tons. Early researchers thought that the stone was carved in the 1470s, however, modern scholars date the carving to between 1502 and 1521.

The Design’s History

The original 1934-1938 Texas Centennial Commemorative Half Dollars of 1934-1938 are valued by numismatists and Lone Star aficionados alike. High-grade coins have sold at auction for $15,000 or more.

It was authorized by Congress in 1933 when sculptor Pompeo Coppini, an Italian-born, San Antonio resident, received the commission to design the coin. His work includes public monuments and sculptures in Austin, Waco, Huntsville, Gonzalez, Paris, and College Station.

Coppini’s aim was to incorporate as many Texas symbols into the coin as he could. It resulted in one of the most intricately-designed of all United States coins.
