About the 1 Quetzal coin:
Kristen (KVZ) designs each beaded mosaic, which is then crafted by Tz'utujil Maya artisans onto Guatemalan 1 quetzal coins. The quetzal owes its name to a rare and beautiful bird that lives in Central America. The design on the coin bears the inscription “Paz” (Peace) in the likeness of a stylized dove, with the inscription “Paz Firme y Duradera” (Firm and Lasting Peace) on the back, commissioned in 1997 to commemorate the end of a thirty year civil war.
