The statues pictured are located at the archaeological zone of Tula (Central Mexico), on the Sun god's temple (Quetzalcoatl), watching over their ancient city which dates back to 713 B.C. The "Atlantes" are gigantic statues, in this case representing Toltec warriors. In their right hand they carry weapons that fired darts, while in their left hand they hold several arrows. On their chest they carry a butterfly shaped vest and on their backs they carry a calendar. On this coin, the image of the Atlantes is surrounded by a design inspired on their vest.
