Mexican Silver Libertad coining skyrocketed in 2016 at the Mexican Mint. After falling from recent highs between 1 and 1.6 million coins minted annually between 2009 and 2011, the 1 oz Silver Libertad has been climbing again in demand. After 903,000 coins were struck in 2015, demand jumped sharply upwards in 2016 to 1.43 million coins.
The highest single-mintage year of the Silver Libertad remains 1992, when 2.458 million coins were produced. However, 2016 Silver Libertad sales for the 1 oz coin came in fifth highest in program history.
On the obverse side of the coin is the image of Winged Victory. Her angelic figure features prominently on the Mexican Independence Victory Column in the center of Mexico City. The statue was erected in 1921 in honor of the nation’s centennial independence celebration, which was the same year Winged Victory appeared on the gold Centenario coin for the first time.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Mexican Silver Libertad coin features the Mexican coat of arms. There are actually several renditions on the coin, with the modern version in the center surrounded by all 10 historic versions used since 1821.
