Money making; stamping and milling the disks and weighing the finished coins, 20th century

Money making; stamping and milling the disks and weighing the finished coins, 20th century. When the disks have been cut they are 'marked' (top left), that is, the edge is slightly raised to protect the coin from abrasion, then washed in acid, cleaned in sawdust and dried by hot air. The disks are next stamped (top right). Finally the coins are weighed (bottom) in a room full of balances that are inspected daily. The coins fall automatically into one of three slots; heavy, light or correct.

Disc used as a chalice cover, from Hidalgo, Mexico, c1540. Artist: Werner Forman

Disc used as a chalice cover, from Hidalgo, Mexico, c1540. This is the only featherwork example from the early colonial period. Mixing Aztec iconography with the recently arrived Christian ideas, the whirlpool, symbol of the goddess Chalchihuitlicue, now represents the Holy Water, while the flame represents the blood of Christ. From the National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City.
