The Mexican Silver Libertad coin debuted in 1982 from the Mexican Mint, but was only available at the time in a 1 oz silver weight. After a decade of availability, the mint expanded the series twice in the 1990s. First in 1991 came the fractional-weight coins, followed in 1996 by the 2 oz and this 5 oz Silver Libertad.
For the 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad, mintage figures have remained among the lowest in the series each year. It debuted with just 20,000 coins in 1996, and has surpassed that only once when it reached 21,000 in 2009. In 23 years, mintage of the 5 oz Silver Libertad has hit 10,000 on only 3 other occasions and surpassed 10,000 just one other time with 11,400 in 2016.
On the obverse of the 2018 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coin is the design of Winged Victory. Her depiction is featured atop the Mexican Victory Independence Column in Mexico City. The column and statue were erected in 1921 to mark the centennial of Mexican independence from Spain.
The reverse of all 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertads bears the coat of arms for the nation. The Mexican coat of arms featured here is the modern version, and on this coin is surrounded by 10 historic designs used by the nation over the course of its history.
Founded in 1535, the Mexican Mint is controlled by Banco de Mexico and overseen by the federal government. In addition to bullion coinage, the mint is responsible for coining circulation currency and printing paper money.
