The imagery used on the Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coin, and others in the series, come from the heart of Mexicos past. The obverse side of the coin alone is steeped in historical imagery stretching as far back as the ancient Aztec cultures that once dominated modern-day Mexico and greater Central America.
For instance, in the background field on the obverse youll notice two large mountain peaks. These are the twin volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl. The names come from a tale of Aztec lovers, one of whom was sent off to battle and presumed dead by the other. Iztaccihuatl, assuming Popocatepetl to be dead, dies of grief only for Popocatepetl to return home and find his beloved has died.
All 2017 1/10 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coins are available to you inside of their original Mexican Mint capsule. The coins have a beautiful proof striking that lends mirrored effects and rough, matte finishes to the design sets to create visual contrast between the two fields.
On the obverse of the 2017 Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coin is the image of Winged Victory. A statue was erected in her honor in the central square of Mexico City in 1921 to mark the centennial of the nations independence, and her figure graced the Centenario gold coin from 1921 to 1947, as well as the modern Gold Libertad from 1983 onward.
The reverse of all 2017 1/10 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coins includes the modern coat of arms for Mexico. While the 1 oz gold coin has the modern symbol and all 10 historic versions, fractional-weight coins only have enough surface area for the modern version of the bald eagle battling a serpent.
Controlled by Banco de Mexico and overseen by the federal government, the Mexican Mint is North Americas oldest operating facility. It was originally founded by Spanish conquistadors in 1535 and formerly struck coinage for Spanish colonies throughout the Western Hemisphere.
