In the 1920s, Mexico began to celebrate the centennial of its battle for independence from Spain. As the nation celebrated, it turned to iconic imagery from its history. The Winged Victory statue of an angel was erected in the central plaza of Mexico City. Coins struck during the period featured the nations prominent volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, as well as various iterations of the countrys coat of arms.
On the obverse side of these Mexican Libertad coins is the image of the statue of Winged Victory in the center. In the background, the volcanoes, which played a big role in ancient Aztec culture, are featured. Engravings on this side include 5 Onzas, Plata Pura, 2015 Ley .999. The mint mark for the Mexican Mint, OM, is featured to the right of the angel.
The reverse side bears the current Mexican coat of arms in the center, surrounded by a total of 10 different versions of the coat used throughout the nations history. In all the coat of arms, a bald eagle is featured perched atop a cactus with a snake wrapped in its claws and beak.
