The Mexican Gold Libertad coin was first produced in 1981 with 3 weight offerings – 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz. These coins contained .900 fine gold. It was 10 years before any Gold Libertad coins were produced again and they now included 5 weight offerings 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz. From this point on, the coins contained .999 pure gold. In 2001, no Gold Libertad coins were produced, and in 2012, only the 1 oz Gold Libertads were produced.

The 2015 1 oz Mexican Gold Libertad coin offered through this listing possesses a Mint State 70 (MS70) certification from the Professional Coin Grading Service, PCGS. Coins awarded this grade are perfect as minted they have their full original mint luster and display no trace of wear, handling, scratches, or contact with other coins. With this grading, the impressive purity of the gold content, and the low mintage numbers, these coins are hard to find.
The current national Coat of Arms of Mexico graces the obverse of the 2015 Mexican Gold Libertad coin. It features a Mexican golden eagle, perched atop a cactus, with a snake in its beak. Surrounding the eagle above are the words ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS and below are oak and laurel leaves. Wrapped in a circle along the edge of the coin are 10 past versions of the official Coat of Arms of Mexico used throughout history.
The Winged Victory statue in Mexico City, also known as the Angel of Independence, graces the reverse of the Gold Libertad coin. In the background are 2 famous Mexican volcanoes – Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl. Aztec mythology tells of a love affair between princess Iztaccihuatl and the warrior Popocatepetl that suffered a tragic ending, which these 2 volcanoes are said to represent.
