The Mexican Gold Libertad from the Mexican Mint is one of the handful of gold bullion coins around the world that features designs directly inspired by a historic circulation coin.

In this product listing, JM Bullion offers you the chance to purchase a 1 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coin from random years of issue. The Gold Libertad has an interesting production history. First introduced in 1981, the coins were not struck again in gold until 1991. The original series of 1981 coins included only these 1 oz coins, along with a ½ oz and ¼ oz option. Please keep in mind that slight markings, minor flaws, or toning are possible on these coins due to the age of certain specimens. Overall, each of the coins offered through this listing come in good condition.
Since 1991, the Mexican Gold Libertad has been struck in spurts. The Mexican Mint produced the coins from 1991 to 1994, again in 2000, and now in each year since 2002. The highest mintage year in program history remains, by far, 1981. There were 596,000 1 oz Mexican Gold Libertads struck in that first year, while the lowest production year came in 2003 when just 500 coins were produced.
JM Bullion cannot guarantee the year of issue you’ll receive with your purchase today. When your order is processed for shipping, our warehouse team will send you a coin in protective plastic with a year of issue based upon availability at that moment.
On the obverse of all 1 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coins you’ll find the image of the modern coat of arms for the nation in the center. It is immediately surrounded by the phrase “Estados Unidos Mexicanos,” and a wreath. Around the outer field you’ll find 10 historic versions of the coat of arms used since the 1820s.
The reverse of the Mexican Gold Libertad coin in the 1 oz gold weight bears the image of Winged Victory. A symbol of resistance for the Mexican people during their revolution against Spain in the 1820s, today she stands atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in the heart of Mexico City.
The Mexican Mint is located in Mexico City and is the official sovereign mint of the nation. Originally founded by Spanish conquistadors in 1535, today it is controlled by Banco de Mexico.
