A Silver Kilo coin was first released in 2007, displaying a beautiful design of the Aztec Calendar. The Aztec Calendar design originates from the calendar system that was used by the Aztecs, consisting of a 365 day calendar cycle, and a 260 day ritual cycle. These two cycles combine together to form a 52 year century. The 365 day calendar cycle is known as "xiuhpohualli", or the "counting of the years", based on the solar cycle. This calendar was divided into 18 groups of 20 days each. The 260 day ritual cycle, known as "tonalpohualli", or the "counting of the days", was most likely based on astronomy. This calendar cycle was broken into units of 20 days, and ran simultaneously with a group of 13 numbered days. The Aztec calendar stone that displays this calendar system also has the face of the Aztec sun god, Tonatiuh, in the center of the stone, surrounded by four square panels honoring previous ages of the world.

You don't buy one of these because it's a chunk of silver (although that's a bonus) .. you buy it because it's a work of art. The Perth mint monsters are cool to stack, but this is one you'd put on display. The wooden box is also a work of art in itself. Curiously, Apmex ships the coin and the box/papers separately but that's probably just to save space in their vault. They only make 500 of these so get one to prove to your friend that the ancients were wrong about the world ending in 2012.
