Each 2017 1/20 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 a range of minor flaws. These flaws are limited to visual detractions such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the coining process.
Gold Libertad coins were introduced in the 1 oz bullion version in 1981, but the coins were not regularly produced after that point until 1991. The 1/20 oz coin was introduced in that year along with various other fractional-weight options.
1/20 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coins have been struck 21 times since 1991, with no coins struck from 1995 to 1999, and none in 2001. The mintage figure of the 1/20 oz Gold Libertad has fallen dramatically since its first and second year of availability but has been rising each year consecutively since just 650 were struck in 2013.
On the obverse of the 1/20 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coin you’ll find Winged Victory. This image of the Angel of Independence is based upon the statue found at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column, which was erected in 1921 in Mexico City in honor of the 100th anniversary of the nation’s victory in its revolutionary war against Spain.
The reverse of all fractional-weight Mexican Gold Libertad Coins includes the coat of arms for Mexico, which depicts a Mexican bald eagle atop a cactus wrapped in battle with a serpent. The fractional-weight coins in the Gold Libertad collection only feature the modern coat of arms, while 1 oz gold and above coins have the modern coat of arms and 10 historic depictions.
