Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins originated in 1983 with only the 1 oz coin available. This continued until 1992 when the fractional weights were introduced. Throughout its mintage history, the Mexican Mint has used mintage maximums to control availability for these coins and maintain high demand.
From 1993 to 1996, the mintage maximum was the same for all coins, but recently the 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1 oz versions of the Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coin have had the highest allowable maximums. In 2014, the mint capped the 1 oz coin at 6,400, compared to 5,500 and 5,300, respectively, for the 1/20 oz and 1/10 oz options.
The 2015 1 Kilo Proof Mexican Silver Libertad is part of the youngest offering of Proof Libertads from the Mexican Mint. Introduced in this weight in 2002, production has remained low throughout the years, giving these coins immense collectors value as few are available on the market.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1 Kilo Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coin is the modern coat of arms for Mexico in the center of the coin, which features an eagle battling a serpent on a cactus branch. Around the outer rim are 10 historic versions of the coat of arms for Mexico, dating back to the early 19th century.
The obverse side 2015 1 Kilo Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins include the images of two iconic Mexican symbols. In the background are the volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, named after a pair of ancient Aztec lovers. In the foreground is the Angel of Independence as featured on the Winged Victory statue in Mexico City.
Mexicos official sovereign mint, the Mexican Mint, is controlled by the federal government and overseen by the Banco de Mexico. In addition to Mexican Silver Libertads, it produces circulation coins and paper bank notes.
