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 a 2 oz and 5 oz variant in 1996.
The 1 Kilo Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins were introduced in 2002, and have been produced with extremely limited mintage figures throughout their 15-year history. The highest single-year production of the 1 Kilo Proof came in 2002 when it was introduced with a mintage of 1,820. The lowest mintage year was 2013 with just 400 coins struck.
On the obverse of the 2016 1 Kilo Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coin is the image of Winged Victory, complete with engravings of the weight, metal content, year of issue, and purity of the coin. The Mexican Mint’s “OM” mint mark is also featured on this side.
The reverse of all 1 Kilo Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins bears the Mexican coat of arms used currently by the government in the center. Surrounding it are 10 historic versions of the seal used throughout the nation’s independent history.
The Mexican Mint is the oldest operating facility in the Western Hemisphere. Originally opened in 1535, it once struck coins for all Spanish territories and colonies in the Western world. Today is the nation’s official sovereign mint.
