The historic significance of Chichen Itza – the Pre-Columbian city built during the Mayan civilization – is manifested throughout Mexico, and is considered one of the country’s richest cultural landmarks.
Now, five commemorative coins  featuring Chichen Itza are available for purchase through the Bank of Mexico.
The coins are being circulated to raise awareness around the cultural wealth of the historic Mayans, particularly with regard to architecture. The Ruins of Chichen Itza  are one of the most frequently visited sites in Mexico, and have remained a symbol of Mexican architectural style that continues to be influential to this day.
This is not the first time that Chichen Itza’s significance has been recognized through coin collecting. Previously, a series of gold and silver coins called “the Maya Collection from the Pre-Columbian Series” proved to be a great success.
The new coins will have images of Chichen Itza monuments such as the Pyramid of Kukulcán. "These coins will continue spreading awareness of the richness of Mayan culture and architecture," the bank said. "The coins should be popular with both collectors and the general public due to their beauty and cultural significance."
