Each Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coin offered by JM Bullion in this listing is a near-perfect proof with a PF69 grade from the NGC. Coins of this type exhibit full, original luster, but also feature as many as two minor detracting flaws.
As an ultra-cameo coin, these Proof Silver Libertads have a strong, frosted finish on the design sets (Winged Victory, Mexican seal, engravings, etc.). The background fields have a deeply-mirrored, clear finish that creates stark contrast between the designs on the coin and its background layer.
Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins were originally introduced in 1983, one year after the bullion version. The proof coins struggled to gain traction, as the Mexican Mint did not strike them in 1984 or 1985. The 1 oz coins returned in 1986, with the program expanding to include four fractional weights in 1992, and adding this 5 oz variant in 1996.
On the reverse face of all Mexican Silver Libertad coins youll find the Mexican coat of arms. Larger coins in the series, such as these 5 oz Proof Silver Libertads, have the modern coat of arms in the center of a design that is encircled by 10 historic versions of the seal.
The obverse of the coin features the modern depiction of Winged Liberty. The statue of Victoria of Mexican Independence is also found in the center of Mexico City, where it was erected in 1920 to honor the nations 100th year of independence from Spanish colonial rule.
