Over the years, the range has been expanded to include both smaller and larger sized coins as well as proof versions for collectors.

The reverse featured the Coat of Arms of Mexico depicting a golden eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus and devouring a snake, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil.
The second and current design for the series introduced in 1996 features a different view of winged Victoria with the two volcanoes still appearing prominently in the background. On the reverse, the central Coat of Arms of Mexico was reduced in size so that the historical costs of arms could appear surrounding.
After producing the bullion coins in one ounce size only from 1982 to 1990, smaller sized coins were added in 1991. This included 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/2 oz sizes. Starting in 1996, larger sizes were added, including 2 oz size and 5 oz size coins.

The highest mintages occur for just two years when production exceeded the two million mark for the most popular one ounce size. Significant mintage lows were recorded in 1998 and 1999 when production levels dropped considerably across all sized coins. Although the one ounce size would never revisit these lows, the smaller sized coins hit even lower mintage levels in 2007 before rebounding in more recent years.
