One of the hardest coins to find in the Precolumbian Series.


These small figures are remarkable examples of the Olmec culture. The "Jaguar Men" are found in a variety of positions and attitudes, the most common being the ones showing a personage sitting down and wearing a helmet. All figures feature altered faces to look somewhat like a jaguar. The jaguar was the central figure during the Olmec rituals. All Type II coins, with Mexico City mintmark above the date, are not listed in KM so far.
