Each 2018 5 oz Antique Mexican Silver Libertad Coin available here comes with a protective plastic capsule. The coins in the Antique Silver Libertad Series have an antique polish applied to both sides of the coin to create a distinctive, old-world visual appeal. The intricate details of the coin stand out with the application of this antique polish.
In 2018, the Mexican Mint introduced these Antique Silver Libertads. The coins were introduced only in the 1 oz, 2 oz, and 5 oz silver coins, with a debut mintage of 40,000 in the 1 oz weight and just 2,000 in the other two larger weights. The following year saw a capped mintage figure of just 1,000 coins across all three weights.
Obverse designs on 2018 Antique Mexican Silver Libertad Coins include the Mexican coat of arms. The modern seal features a powerful Mexican golden eagle on a prickly pear cactus. The eagle is using its talons and beak to control a serpent. There is a wreath of oak and laurel beneath, with the nation of issue above. On these 5 oz silver coins, you will also find 10 historic versions of the seal around the border.
Reverse visuals on the 2018 5 oz Antique Silver Libertad Coins feature Winged Victory. Based on the allegorical figure of Victory, this winged figure is shown atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City with the mountains of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl in the background field. She holds up a laurel wreath in her right hand with a set of broken chains in her left hand.
