Based on [csm60] and [ban95]
The Coat of Arms was designed by Jorge Enciso [csm60].
(...) It has an eagle in profile, looking to the right, with high-expanded wings, and the tail down. It is standing over its left claw on a prickly pear grows from a stone, that in turn comes out from the water. With the right claw is grasping a rattlesnake to which bites with its beak as well. A garland, made up by oak and laurel branches united in the lower part by a ribbon, surrounds the achievement. (...) For seals and coins the coat of arms is to be added the text: ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS, written in the upper semicircle. (...) The new Enciso's draft was not designed following just rules of beauty, but he tried to follow a symbolic sense (...)
There were official full-color versions on this Coat of Arms for flags, embassies, and consulates; official black-and-white versions were designed for coins, and seals [ban95].
