Mexican Gold Libertad coins debuted in 1981 with the release of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz gold coins. While the series looked like an exciting addition to a global gold bullion coin market that included only the South African Gold Krugerrand and Canadian Gold Maple Leaf as major options at this time, the Gold Libertad would go another decade without an issue. In fact, between 1981 and 2002, the coins were only issued from 1991 to 1994 and in 2000. The coins have been available annually since 2002.
The obverse of 2020 1 oz Gold Libertad Coins features a depiction of Winged Victory. This image of Victory in three-quarter profile relief is inspired by her statue as it stands at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column. This image of Victory and the column were erected in 1921 to honor the nation’s independence centennial and both featured on the 1921 Gold Centenario, a 50 Peso gold coin that served as the inspiration for this modern gold bullion series.
On the reverse side of 2020 Mexican Gold Libertad Coins is the national coat of arms. In fact, Mexico’s modern national coat of arms features at the center with a ring of 10 historic versions surrounding it. These historic designs date all the way back to the Codex Mendoza from 1524 that features at the 12-o’clock position around the design edge.
