The 2 oz Proof Silver Libertad was introduced by the Mexican Mint in 1996. The 1996 release was the second expansion of the Proof Silver Libertads following the introduction of the fractional-ounce silver coins in 1991. Issued along with the 2 oz silver coin in 1996 was the 5 oz silver coin.
There was only one other coin to be introduced after 1996, and that was 2002 when a 1 kilo proof-like coin was introduced in the series. There are now eight weights in total in this series, with the heavier weights often boasting some of the lowest mintage figures in the series. For example, the highest mintage figure recorded in the 2 oz silver weight was the 2009 release with 6,200 coins sold. More recently, 5,000 coins were sold in 2018.
Obverse design elements on the 2021 2 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins include the modern coat of arms and 10 historic versions of the emblem. The design features a Mexican golden eagle in left-profile relief as it uses its talons and beak to try to exercise control over a rattlesnake. The duo is depicted on the arm of a prickly pear cactus as the battle between the creatures ensues. Around the design element, you will find 10 historic versions of the coat of arms that includes the original design that inspired the modern symbol at the 12 oclock position.
Reverse features of the 2021 Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins come with a depiction of the statue of Winged Victory. A symbol of Mexicos success in its war against Spain for independence, Victory is based on the Roman goddess Victoria that was worshipped by victorious generals following victory in war.
These 2021 2 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins are available to purchase individually inside of protective plastic capsules. The coins are available with frosted designs over mirrored background fields.
