Each 2017 1/20 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coin offered in this listing is a brilliant proof striking in the popular series. Proof coins often have a combination of mirrored finishes and rough, matte design features to create a stunning contrast between backgrounds and design sets on the coins surface.
The Centenario coin was issued by the Mexican Mint in 1921 to celebrate 100 years of independence for the nation of Mexico. That coin featured a front-facing depiction of Winged Victory, a symbol of the Mexican cause against Spanish oppression during the revolution that was later memorialized on the Independence Victory Column in Mexico City.
On the obverse of the 2017 1/20 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coin youll find the image of Winged Victory. The modern depiction of Winged Victory captures her figure in left-profile relief as she holds a wreath in her right hand and the broken chains of servitude in her right. This modern depiction reflects Victorys appearance as seen in the 22-foot tall statue atop the Victory Column, which was erected in Mexico City in 1921.
The reverse of all Proof Mexican Gold Libertad fractional-weight coins includes the modern coat of arms for Mexico. Youll notice a bald eagle set atop a cactus branch as it battles with a snake that it struggles to contain, holding one part of the body with its claws while using its beak to fight off the creature.
Proof Mexican Gold Libertad coins have experienced spotty production at the Mexican Mint. First introduced in 1983, they were only available in 1 oz gold at the time. These 1/20 oz Proof Gold Libertads have been struck annually now since 2005.
