In the center of Mexico City youll find the winged depiction of Victoria atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column. Erected in 1921 to mark the nations centennial independence celebration, Victoria has rich history in human civilization as the personification of victory in ancient Roman religions.
To the people of Mexico, Winged Victory is a symbol of their triumph over the Spanish Empire in the war of independence that began in 1821. In this particular design, Victoria holds aloft a wreath crown symbolizes victory. In her left hand, she holds the broken chains of servitude that represent Mexicos newfound freedom.
Each 2016 oz Mexican Silver Libertad coin in this JM Bullion listing has a Brilliant Uncirculated grade. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, but may feature breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the striking process.
On the obverse of the coin is that image of Winged Victory, as featured on the Mexican Independence Victory Column. This depiction of Victoria in Mexican culture arose from the war of independence, but first featured on the gold Centenario coin released by the Mexican Mint in 1921.
The reverse side of the 2016 oz Mexican Silver Libertad features the modern-day coat of arms for the nation. Other, larger, coins in the Mexican Silver Libertad series feature a circle of 10 historic coat of arms designs. Given the smaller surface area, these oz coins do not have the other versions of the symbol.
