The designs found on both sides of the Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coinage are steeped in Mexican history and that of the Aztec Empire which preceded the modern nation in existence. For instance, the background field of the reverse includes two volcanic mountain peaks. These mountains are visible from Mexico City and named Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.
These volcanic peaks are named for a pair of Aztec lovers from the pre-Columbian history of Central America. Active volcanic peaks, Popocatepetl alone has experienced 20 major eruptions since the arrival of Spanish forces in 1519 and has an ongoing eruption cycle that has been active since 2004.
Winged Victory is in the foreground of the reverse field and is a symbol as important to the Mexican people as Lady Liberty is to Americans. Both figures are based upon the Goddess of Liberty, with Winged Victory representing Mexicos successful attempts to gain freedom from Spanish rule.
All Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins have the same design elements on the obverse and reverse, with the lone exception being the lack of the 10 historic coat of arms symbols on the obverse of the fractional-weight coins.
The reverse of the 2018 2 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coin has the image of Winged Victory in the center. This design is based upon the Mexican Independence Victory Columns statue of Winged Victory which stands in the center of Mexico City.
On the obverse of 2 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins is the design of the seal of Mexico. The nations modern coat of arms is featured in the center and surrounded immediately by the name of the nation and a wreath, with an outer design element that includes 10 different historical versions of the symbol.
