The Mexican Silver Libertads are a unique collector’s item for a number of reasons. First, they were the first-ever silver bullion coins used for investors. Second, they don’t have a face value, which is somewhat odd for an officially government-minted coin. They aren’t legal tender, yet they are still considered coins and not rounds.
The obverse design of the 2013 Mexican Libertad Silver Coin begins with the National Shield in the center. The words Estados Unidos Mexicanos (or United Mexican States) appear above and around the central element. Around that, 10 other symbols from various Mexican coats of arms are arrayed.
On the reverse, the Winged Victoria statue is seen in the foreground. The statue is also known as the Angel of Independence. It stands on a tall column in a major street in Mexico City. On the 2013 Mexican Libertad Silver Coin, the statue is depicted in front of Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, two volcanoes that are iconic in Mexican myth.
The Winged Victoria statue was designed as part of a contest to create something that would commemorate Mexican independence. However, it wasn’t until 1900 that the construction of a column in Mexico City began. The column of independence is the base for the Winged Victoria statue, which rises above the buildings nearby. The construction of the column was not without challenge, and builders had to contend with at least one collapse.
