Each 2019 1/20 oz Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coin in this product listing ships individually with a protective plastic capsule.

Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coins were first issued in 1983 with only a 1 oz coin available. Another release didnt occur until 1989 and this time it was only a 1/2 oz gold coin. That was followed by a third release in 2004 that included only a 1/4 oz option. In 2005, the Mexican Mint made the Proof Gold Libertad an annual item with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz coins each year. The only exception since then was 2012 when no Proof Gold Libertad coins were struck.
On the obverse side of 2020 Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coins is the depiction of Winged Victory. Winged Victory is a symbol of Mexicos resistance to Spanish colonial rule and its eventual victory over the European power in its war for independence. Winged Victory holds a wreath crown in one hand and a set of broken chains in the other hand.
The reverse face of 2020 1/20 Proof Mexican Gold Libertad Coins has the modern coat of arms for Mexico. The official seal of Mexico features a golden eagle in the center on a cactus as it uses its beak and talons to battle with a serpent. The words Estados Unidos Mexicanos are inscribed above the design with a wreath below.
Spanish conquistadors founded the Mexican Mint in 1535 to refine gold and silver from Spanish colonies in the Western Hemisphere. Some of those metals were made into colonial currency and others were smelted and sent back to Europe.
