The design, produced by the Secretariat of National Defense, highlights the history of patriotism, loyalty, courage and honor of the soldiers of the air.

The coin forms part of the vast history of Mexican numismatics.

The two sides of the coin are engraved with the logo of the celebration of the Centenary and the national coat of arms.

The design, produced by the Mexican Air Force, reflects a sense of belonging, historical appreciation of the institution and institutional pride.

The five million coins circulating today, in addition to commemorating the Air Force, represent:

1. The efforts by the Mexican people to consolidate an armed air force.

2. An acknowledgement of pilots killed or injured in the line of duty.

3. The legacy in the collective memory of a century dedicated to the loftiest causes of the nation.
