In 1985 the Mexico City Mint issued a special circulating commemorative to recognize the 75th Anniversary of the Mexico Revolution establishing the modern day state.
The obverse design features the Mexican coat of arms, an eagle clutching a snake while it perches on a prickly pear cactus. In an arc around the design is the phrase “ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS” or United Mexican States.
The reverse design features the four bust images (all conjoined) of Revolutionary heroes Pancho Villa, Venustiano Carranza, Francisco Madero, and Emiliano Zapata with the phrase "75 ANIVERSARIO DE LA REVOLUCION MEXICANA" or 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE MEXICAN REVOLUTION. To the far left is the mint mark "Mo" for the Mexico City Mint.
The coin edge is lettered with the phrase "TIERRA Y LIBERTAD" or LAND OF LIBERTY.
