The Mexican Silver Libertad is a unique bullion coin among its North American counterparts. Like many silver bullion coin programs, the Libertad features designs that are reflective of the history and culture of Mexico. However, while its competitors in the Canadian Maple Leaf and American Eagle have mintage figures often reaching into the millions, the Mexican Libertad has very low mintage figures. Today, 2017 1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coin is available to you online from JM Bullion.

Mexican Silver Libertad coins are unique in a variety of ways. Beyond their much lower mintage figures when compared to the Canadian Maple Leaf and American Eagle, the Mexican Libertad coins have no face value marked. The coins are legal tender bullion, but a floating face value was assigned to the coins, meaning the daily market listing of Mexican legal tender determines the value of the Mexican Silver Libertads.
In this product listing, JM Bullion offers those buying silver the option to purchase a Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coin. Available in a total of seven weights, Silver Libertads are offered in four fractional weights and two larger weight coins beyond the 1 oz silver offering featured in this listing. Your 2017 1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coin arrives inside of a protective plastic capsule.
On the obverse of the Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coin you’ll find the iconic image of Winged Victory. Her figure was famous during the Mexican Revolution in the 1820s, and today a depiction of Winged Victory stands atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in the center of Mexico City where it was erected in 1921 to commemorate 100 years of independence from Spanish rule.
The reverse of all 2017 1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins includes the coat of arms for Mexico. This design includes a bald eagle perched atop a cactus branch with a serpent wrapped in its talons and claws. It was meant as a reflection of the nation’s struggle to free itself from the suffocating colonial rule of Spain. It is surrounded by 10 other designs of the coat of arms used over the past 180 years.
All Proof Mexican Libertad coins are produced by the Mexican Mint. First established in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors, today the Mexican Mint is the official sovereign mint of Mexico and controlled by Banco de Mexico.
