Mexican Libertad Silver Coin
Silver has a profound place in Mexico’s rich history, dating back to the time of indigenous peoples who recognized its inherent value. This legacy continued with the arrival of European conquerors attracted by Mexico’s precious metals. Today, Mexico remains a significant producer of both gold and silver, with silver coins playing a lasting role in the country’s coinage.
The Mexican Libertad, a one troy ounce pure silver coin, proudly carries forward this legacy. Produced by La Casa de Moneda de Mexico, located in the heart of Mexico City, it boasts the distinction of being the oldest mint in the Americas. Established in 1535 under the decree of Antonio de Mendoza, the regional Viceroy, with approval from the Spanish Crown, this historic mint’s legacy spans centuries. Coins minted here, including the famed silver 8 real, once circulated widely in the Americas and Asia until the 18th century.
Design and Symbolism
The Libertad coin features an iconic design: the Angel of Independence, inspired by the renowned golden statue, the Monumento a la Independencia, located on Mexico City’s iconic Paseo de la Reforma. This monument stands as a tribute to Mexico’s hard-fought victory in its war for independence from Spain. The Angel grasps a laurel crown in one hand, symbolizing victory, while in the other hand, a broken chain represents freedom – a powerful symbol of Mexico’s resilience.
- One troy ounce of .999 pure silver.
- Limited mintages, making it a unique and sought-after collectible.
- Guaranteed weight and purity, certified by Banco de Mexico.
On the reverse side of this exquisite coin, you’ll discover Mexico’s National Shield, presented in two distinct designs depending on the coin’s issue date. The shield depicts a golden eagle perched atop a prickly pear cactus, devouring a rattlesnake – a potent symbol of Mexico’s identity and heritage. Coins minted prior to 1997 bear the text “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” (United Mexican States) just above the shield, while more recent issues showcase the modern National Shield at the center, encircled by ten earlier versions from Mexico’s rich history.
The Angel of Victory takes center stage on the coin’s obverse, set against the backdrop of two prominent volcanoes – Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl. While the precise details of this design may vary by year, the fundamental elements remain unchanged, ensuring the Libertad’s enduring appeal.
