This design shows a sculpture known as jaguar, an animal that was adored by the Toltecs. Surrounding the "Jaguar" there is an outline with a design inspired by one of the columns of the Quetzalcoatl-Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli temple. Nowadays, this sculpture is located in the anthropology and national history museum located in Mexico City. Coin pictures a "Jaguar Man," an example of small figures 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 somewhat look like a jaguar. The jaguar was the center element during the Olmec rituals.
