Based closely on Naipes ‘Gallo’ by Clemente Jacques, which have become almost a standard pattern in Mexican playing cards, which in turn are inspired by Fournier's ‘Castilian’ pattern designed by Augusto Rius in the 1880s. Pronaco also produce similar packs with the brand names ‘Centenario’, ‘Emperador’ and ‘Imperial’, as well as tarot packs.
