Numiscollect replicate the incredible early 16th century Aztec Calendar on their latest silver coin One of the most intriguing civilisations of the last millenia, the Aztec Empire wasn't a particularly long-lasting one. Starting as an alliance of three city states called Mexico-Tenochtitlan, Texcoco and Tlacopan, the Aztecs ruled the area in and around the Valley of Mexico from 1428 until 1521.
