Coin shows a human being in an unconventional position, semi-reclining holding a disk or plate between his hands over his stomach. This type of sculpture relates to the way the Mayans made their sacrifices. At least 14 figures in the same position have been found in Chichen-Itza. Other figures of this type have been found in the Central region of Mexico and in different parts of Mesoamerica.
