Mexicos Gold Libertad coin has a complicated mintage history. The first coins were introduced in 1981, with three different weights available in a bullion version. The first Proof Mexican Gold Libertad didnt appear until 1989, with just a oz coin offered. In 2004, the first oz coins were struck by the Mexican Mint.
Today, the Mexican Mint strikes the Proof Mexican Gold Libertad in a bullion and proof version, with five weights available in each version. The bullion coin has higher mintage levels, but the lower mintage numbers for proof coins make them hard to find.
