The 2018 1/4 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coin marks the 26th year of issue for this particular fractional weight in the series. The 1/4 oz was introduced in 1992 along with the 1/2 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz coins and is often the lowest in terms of mintage figures. In 2018, just 2,500 1/4 oz Proof Silver Libertads were struck while the other fractional weights had mintage figures nearly three times that amount.
On the reverse of the 2018 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coin is a depiction of Winged Victory in the center. She is a vision of Liberty for millions of Mexican people and stands atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in the center of Mexico City. Accompanying her in this design are the volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl in the background.
The volcanoes are located roughly 43 miles to the southeast of Mexico City and are linked by a geographic structure known as a high saddle, with Iztaccihuatl sitting to the north of Popocatepetl. The saddle is known by the name Paso de Cortes.
For the reverse side of the 1/4 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coin, the Mexican Mint uses a simple design depicting the nations official coat of arms. The seal includes an eagle in the center on a cactus branch as its wrestles to contain a snake. There is a wreath below the seal and the words Estados Unidos Mexicanos engraved above.
The Mexican Mint is located in Mexico City and was once known as the Mexico City Mint. The facility was originally opened in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors and today is in the control of the federal government and Banco de Mexico.
