The vast majority of Proof Gold Libertad production has taken place since 2005. In that year, the Mexican Mint introduced the Proof Gold coins in five total weights, including 1 oz, oz, 1/10 oz, 1/20 oz, and these oz options. However, two of the four fractional weights had appeared before from the mint.
Production of oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad coins occurred in 2004, making them the only weight offered in that year. The oz Proof Gold Libertad was produced in a limited number in 1989, and was the only coin struck that year in the proof series by the Mexican Mint. Overall, production of Proof Mexican Gold Libertad coins has been strictly limited. The single largest mintage of any coin came in 2005 when 2,600 oz coins were struck.
On the obverse of the 2017 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coin youll find the image of Winged Victory. This depiction of the Angel of Independence is found as a 22-foot statue atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column, erected in the center of Mexico City in 1921 to mark the nations centennial birthday.
The reverse of the Proof Mexican Gold Libertad fractional-weight coins includes the modern coat of arms for Mexico. This depiction includes an eagle locked in battle with a serpent from its perch on a cactus branch. The imagery reflects Spain as the snake trying to strangle Mexico, while the eagle represents the determination and pride of the Mexican people in fighting back.
Founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors, the Mexican Mint is North Americas oldest operating facility. Today it strikes bullion and commemorative coinage for the nation, as well as circulation coinage and banknotes.
