- Part of the Early Release Series.

Mexico first introduced the images used on the modern Libertad coin in the 1920s. During the nations centennial celebration of the start of its War of Independence, symbols such as Winged Victory and the national coat of arms were used on new coins from the Mexico City Mint.
Today, the Mexican Silver Libertad presents those same images on the nations modern sovereign coin program. First launched in 1982 with a 1 oz weight available, there are now a total of eight coins available in the series, including 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, oz, oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 1 kilogram.
Each of the coins in this product listing is a 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad with a near-perfect grade of MS69. Coins in this grade have their full, original luster, with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. As part of the Early Release series, these coins arrived at the NGC within the first 30 days of production in 2015.
On the obverse side of each coin is the image of the statue of Winged Victory, a symbol of Mexicos triumph over Spain. The reverse side features the Mexican coat of arms, surrounded by historic versions of the seal dating back to the nations independence.
All Mexican Silver Libertad coins are produced at the Mexican Mint, one of the oldest operating facilities in the world.
