Mexican Gold Libertad coins are the direct successors of the historic gold Centenario. The Centenario was first struck by the Mexican Mint in 1920 to honor the centennial of the nations War of Independence with Spain. The beautiful coin featured an image of the angel of independence and the coat of arms, and was struck from 1920 to 1947, with reproductions struck through 1972.
In 1981, the Mexican Mint unveiled the first modern Gold Libertad. The first Proof Mexican Gold Libertad was introduced in 1989 in oz, 2004 in a oz, and then struck annually beginning in 2005.
On the obverse side of these 2011 1/10 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coins youll see an exact likeness of Winged Victory as found on a statue in Mexico City. Her image, which includes a wreath crown in her right hand and the broken chains of colonization in her left, is surrounded by engravings that include a mint mark, the coins weight, metal content, and purity, as well as the year of minting.
The reverse of these fractional-weight coins differs from the 1 oz coin. While the latter has the modern coat of arms and 10 historic versions, these 2011 1/10 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertads have only the modern coat of arms.
Produced at the Mexican Mint on an annual basis, the Proof Mexican Gold Libertad coin is struck on special planchets multiple times by unique die casts that leave a deeply-mirrored finish on each coin.
