Did any of the gold taken from the Aztec empire by Cortes make it back to Spain?

Of course. That is why the kept on shipping it. Some ships were lost due to accidents, others to pirates, or privateers, but, many, if not most, made it to Spain.

Much of it did. Millions of pounds of silver also was shipped to Spain. A pretty good amount never made it. Some of it is still being brought up from the bottom of the Atlantic.
