Each 2017 1/2 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice certain minor flaws. Examples of these potential flaws include breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process.
Mexican Libertad coins are unique among their counterparts in the bullion coin market. Although the coins have legal tender status in Mexico, there is no established face value for the coins. Each coin has a floating face value based upon the gold or silver content of the coin, and rises and falls with the value of its precious metal.
On the obverse of all 2017 1/2 oz Mexican Gold Libertad coins you’ll find Winged Victory. Based upon the Greek Goddess of Victory, she is symbolic of the Mexican struggle for independence from Spain, and she holds a wreath in her right hand with broken chains of servitude in her left.
The reverse of all Gold Libertad coins includes the Mexican coat of arms. Fractional-weight coins in the gold series have only the modern coat of arms on the reverse, which depicts a Mexican bald eagle on a cactus as it battles a serpent.
Founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors, the Mexican Mint is the oldest operating mint facility in the Western Hemisphere. Under Spanish colonial rule, the Mexican Mint struck colonial coinage for vast stretches of the Spanish empire throughout Central and South America.
