Mexican Silver Libertad coins come from arguably the most diverse silver coin series available. Currently, the Mexican Mint strikes these beautiful coins each year in a total of eight weights each year. These range from these 1/20 oz coins on the low end of the scale to the 5 oz and 1 Kilogram coins at the high end of the scale.
On the obverse of 2018 1/20 oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coins youll find the famed image of Winged Victory. Based on the Roman depictions of the goddess of Victory, Winged Victory was a symbol of hope to the people of Mexico in their struggle against Spain for freedom. Winged Victory stands today atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City.
The reverse of the Mexican Silver Libertad Coin features the coat of arms for the nation. For the fractional-weight coins in the series, only the modern coat of arms is included in the design. The image features a bald eagle atop the arm of a cactus as it is locked in battle with a serpent. Mexicos coat of arms is said to reflect the struggle between the nation, the eagle, and the slithering grip of the Spanish Empire, the snake.
Founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors, the Mexican Mint is the oldest operating mint in the Western Hemisphere. Opened to refine gold and silver found in the New World by Spanish conquistadors, the mint also coined currency for all Spanish Empire colonies in the New World.
