The Gold Libertads were introduced by the Mexican Mint in 1981, just two years after Canada introduced its Gold Maple Leaf as the second major gold bullion series available in the world. However, 1981 was a one-year issue and the mint would not strike the Mexican Gold Libertads again until 1991.
When the series returned in 1991 though, this 1/20 oz and a 1/10 oz coin had joined the initial , , and 1 oz gold coins. Production remained inconsistent though, with Gold Libertads available from 1991 to 1994, for one year in 2000, and more recently from 2002 to present.
The highest mintage year for the 1/20 oz coin came in 1992 when 65,225 coins were struck. Recent years, however, have seen much lower mintage figures. The 2017 coin had just 1,000 minted, which was down from 2,900 in 2016 and even below the 1,300 in 2015.
On the obverse of 2018 1/20 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coin is the image of Winged Victory. The image of Winged Victory depicts the resistance of Mexican people based upon the goddess of Victory. Her figure holds a right hand in the air with a wreath signifying self-governance, while her left holds the broken chains of servitude reminiscent of Spanish colonial rule.
The reverse of the 1/20 oz Mexican Gold Libertads features the coat of arms for Mexico. This design includes a bald eagle battling a rattlesnake as it rests on the arm of a cactus. The seal is surrounded on the bottom by a wreath, with Estados Unidos Mexicanos engraved above to complete the encirclement.
Your purchase of a 2018 1/20 oz Mexican Gold Libertad provides you with a coin in BU condition. Coins in this condition bear no signs of wear and tear from handling, but may feature breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks.
