Centavo is a Spanish and Portuguese word, derived from the Latin centum, meaning "one hundred", and the suffix -avo, meaning "portion" or "fraction". Centavo means, strictly, "one-hundredth". It is a fractional monetary unit, used to represent one hundredth of a basic monetary unit in many countries around the world.

The reverse design features a Phrygian Cap with Rays which has long been symbolic of liberty free thinking on coinage. Below the design is a ¾ wreath with denomination “20 CENTAVOS” and date of issue above. In between the denomination is the mint mark “M” for the Mexico City Mint.
