In 1921, the Bank of Mexico commissioned the Mexican Mint to strike commemorative 2 peso coins celebrating the 100th anniversary of the end of the Mexican War of Independence, which ultimately resulted in Mexico's independence from Spain per the Treaty of Córdoba of 1821. It was accompanied by a gold 50 peso coin of similar design. The 2 peso coin is composed of .900 fine silver, weighs 26.6666 grams, and measures 39 millimeters in diameter. It was designed by Mexican artist Emilio del Moral. The coat of arms of Mexico is displayed in the center of the obverse, and inside it, near the eagle's head is the "Mo" mint mark. The title "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS" is inscribed around the coin's upper periphery, and the dates "MDCCCXXI" and "MCMXXI" are printed at the coin's bottom rim. An image of El Ángel de la Independencia (English: "The Angel of Independence"), a monument located in downtown Mexico City, is engraved in the center of the reverse, with the famous volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl rising in the background. The value "DOS PESOS" is printed to the left of El Ángel, and the words "24 Gr. PLATA PURA" (English: "24 grams of pure silver") are inscribed to the right. In total, approximately 1,278,000 examples of the coin were produced. [Fandom Wiki]
