Each 2016 1/20 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coin in this product listing is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice the presences of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process.
Mexican Gold Libertad coins debuted briefly, for one year, in 1981 with a 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz coin. Bullion Libertads were not struck again until 1991, with a four-year run, then a hiatus again until 2000. The Mexican Gold Libertad bullion coin has now been in production annually since 2002 without interuption.
On the obverse of the Mexican Gold Libertad coin is the image of the statue of Winged Victory, a representation of Mexico’s victory over Spain in the War of Independence. Her image reflects the nation’s success, with a wreath held aloft in her right hand and the broken chains of servitude in her left hand.
The reverse of the Gold Libertad includes the modern coat of arms for Mexico. The 11th depiction of the national seal, this features a bald eagle locked in battle with a serpent on the branch of a cactus, with an engraving of “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” around the top of the seal.
The Mexican Mint was founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors intent on exporting the wealth of gold and silver in the New World back to Europe. It served for nearly 300 years as the official coinage facility of the Spanish Empire’s colonies throughout the Western Hemisphere.
