The oz Mexican Gold Libertad debuted in 1981 with the oz and 1 oz gold coins. The 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz gold coins joined the series in 1991 when it resumed after a decade-long absence from the market. The highest mintage in program history for the oz coin came in 1981 with 313,000 coin struck. Modern mintage figures in the 21st century topped out at a high of 5,000 in 2002, and hit a low in 2003 at 300 coins.
On the obverse of all 2018 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coins is the design of Winged Victory. First used on the gold Centenario coin in 1921, this modern depiction is based upon the figure of Winged Victory as found on the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City. The column and state were built in 1921 to celebrate 100 years of freedom.
The reverse of all oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coins features the modern coat of arms for Mexico. The nations official seal is based upon designs used for several centuries dating back to the Aztec Empires use of the symbol to organize soldiers in groups during battle. It features a golden eagle battling a rattlesnake on a cactus branch.
