Description

The Mexican Revolution (Spanish: Revolución mexicana), also known as the Mexican Civil War (Spanish: guerra civil mexicana), was a major armed struggle, lasting roughly from 1910 to 1920.

This coin was struck by the provisional government of the state of Oaxaca. The state of Oaxaca, which was not the scene of any fighting, issued the most extensive series of revolutionary coinage, most with the bust of native son Benito Juárez.
