A generation ago, Mexico was the only North American country issuing legal-tender gold coins. There's no better example of the strength of hard-asset gold coins against inflation: by the 1980's they were worth hundreds of times their face value. Yet they're still remarkably affordable for the American collector. Each bears an Eagle, symbol of Mexican democracy and the legend of the nation's capital Mexico City being founded where an eagle devoured a snake. Mexico was a wartime ally of the U.S. in 1945.
