Ibero-American Series X - Cultural roots

Obverse

It translates into a geometric, symmetrical and balanced composition. In its central imprint it presents the Wiphala and the Argentine National Pavilion, symbolizing the coexistence and the respect to the first settlers, and the principle of equality. They are surrounded by the inscriptions X SERIES IBEROAMERICANA in the upper arch, and RAÍCES CULTURALES - WIPHALA - EMBLEMA DE LOS PUEBLOS ORIGINARIOS in the lower arch. The Wiphala consists of 49 squares, 7 per side, and its chromatic palette alludes to the rainbow (yellow, orange, red, violet, blue, green and white). For each color, represented by graphs that are then translated into textures on the metal, there are 7 squares.

Cultural Roots

The X Ibero-American Series of Commemorative Coins, whose motto is "Cultural Roots", is the result of a collective project that began in 1992 and our country has always participated. This time also involved: Cuba, Ecuador, Spain, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Portugal.

The design of this piece, realized in the Management of Strategic Planning of Treasure of this Institution, refers to the emblem of the native peoples and cone of the ethnic and cultural diversity, the Wiphala. Its square structure, unlike the western flags that are rectangular, evokes: organization, harmony, solidarity, unity, equality, justice, integration, inclusion.
