The Centenario is a Mexican gold bullion coin first minted in 1921 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mexico's independence from Spain. The coin is not intended to be used as currency; the face value of 50 pesos is for legal purposes only, and does not reflect the actual value of the gold content. The obverse of the Centenario contains the image of Winged Victory (El Ángel, El Ángel de la Independencia: "The Angel of Independence"), with a laurel wreath in her right hand and broken chains in her left. Two famous Mexican volcanoes, Popocatepetl and Iztaccíhuatl, rise in the background. The 1821 on the lower left commemorates the year of Mexico's independence. The date on the right indicates year of mintage, with the 1921 through 1931
The reverse depicts the coat of arms of Mexico, which is a golden eagle perched on a cactus with a serpent in its beak.
The Centenario contains 37.59 grams (1.20565 troy ounces) of gold in an alloy of 90% gold and 10% copper (21.6 karat), and is 37 mm in diameter.
The original Centenario design was used in the later Libertad Series of gold and silver bullion coins.
