Bicentenario Coca-Cola Colima I recently received some news (but no bottles yet!) about a new series of commemorative bottles that are being released in Mexico this year.

The purpose of the bottles is to honor Mexico’s Independence Bicentenary and the 100 years of the Mexican Revolution.  The program is a shared initiative by Coca-Cola México and Coca-Cola FEMSA and involves the development of a collection of 32 original designs that will identify Coca-Cola’s iconic “Contour” bottle in Mexico for the 2010 historical celebrations.

The Coca-Cola commemorative bottles special edition will be available from January to September, incorporating between 2 to 5 designs each month, including a special design for each state within the Mexican Republic.

Bicentenario Coca-Cola Quintana Roo Bottles representing eight states have been released: Sonora, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Guerrero, Tlaxcala, Tamaulipas, Nayarit and Veracruz.  I have created a photograph album on our Coca-Cola Archives facebook page where you can see these and the other bottles as they are released.

The two photos are the bottles due to be released in April; Colima and Quintana Roo.
