In 1996, the Mexican Mint introduced two larger-weight options in the Silver Libertad collection. These coins were available in 2 oz silver and 5 oz silver options, with low mintage figures that often fell below those of the popular, but also low, fractional coins. For example, in 1996, the 5 oz coin had a mintage of 20,000 compared to 50,000 for each of the fractional weights.
The 1996 issue of the 2 oz Silver Libertad remains its highest mintage year, with only 2009 coming close at 46,000. The 50,000 coins struck in 1996 is more than double many of the other high-mintage years (2009 aside), with other high mintage years including 2012 with 18,600 and 2015 with 20,100.
