The Mexican Silver Libertad Coin has largely been overlooked by numismatics since its introduction in 1982. Though it is on par with coins like the American Silver Eagle and Austrian Silver Philharmonic, the coin is struck in much lower mintage levels each year. Recently, demand for the Libertad has risen, making it a hard-to-find coin as numismatics look to acquire the coin amid continued low mintage levels. Today, you have the chance to purchase a 2015 1 oz Mexican Silver Libertad from JM Bullion.

Mexican Silver Libertad coins are struck in a total of seven weights each year, with three full weights and four fractional weights. The 1 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad is the most popular coin the series, and tends to have the highest mintage numbers each year. Images used on the Libertad coins trace back to 1920 and Mexico’s celebration of the start of its fight for freedom from Spanish rule.
In the center of Mexico City in 1920, a statue of the Angel of Independence was erected to represent the country’s struggles during the War of Independence. The angel’s image, along with the national coat of arms, were included on the Centenario gold coin. Today, both images are featured on the Mexican Silver Libertad.
On the obverse side of the coin is the statue of the winged angel. She is featured front and center on the coin, with the twin volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl. Engravings include the weight, purity, and metal content. The reverse design focuses on the current Mexican coat of arms, a bald eagle perched atop a cactus with a serpent in its beak. Surrounding that design is the image of various coat of arms used by Mexico in the past.
The Mexican Mint is a decentralized agency of the federal government in Mexico. Also known as La Casa de Moneda de Mexico, the mint is oldest in the Americas, having been founded in 1535.
