On the obverse of 2019 1/2 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins is the image of Winged Victory. This design is modernized from the original gold Centenario coins issued in 1921. Victorys figure is a source of inspiration to the Mexican people from their independence struggle against Spain. The former colonial ruler was booted out of Mexican in 1821. In 1921, the introduction of the Centenario coinage was accompanied by the construction of the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City. Topping that column is a 17-foot statue of Winged Victory.
The reverse side of 2019 1/2 oz Proof Silver Libertad Coins includes the coat of arms for Mexico. In this modern design, an eagle sits on a cactus arm as it battles against a serpent. The imagery is reflective of Mexicos struggle against Spain, with Mexico reflected in the eagle and Spain in the snake.
The Mexican Mint was founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors. Originally constructed to refine gold and silver found in Central and South America, the mint eventually served to strike coinage for the Spanish Empires colonies in the Western Hemisphere. Today it is the official sovereign mint of Mexico.
