The 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad was introduced in 1996 alongside the 2 oz silver coin. It remained the largest option in the series from 1996 when it debuted until 2007. The next year, in 2008, the Mexican Mint introduced the 1 Kilo Mexican Silver Libertad. The 1996 introduction of the 5 oz Silver Libertad resulted in a mintage of 20,000 silver coins, with only the 2009 coin released at the height of the Great Recession surpassing that mintage with a figure of 21,000. Recent date marks have seen an uptick toward record levels, with 16,600 and 18,000 coins sold in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
On the obverse side of 2021 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coins is an image of the modern coat of arms at the center of the design element. The coat of arms depicts a golden eagle battling a serpent from a perch on a cactus branch. There is a wreath of cactus beneath and the national name inscribed above. These 5 oz silver coins also have a ring with 10 historic versions of the Mexican coat of arms surrounding the central design element.
The reverse field of 2021 Mexican Silver Libertad Coins includes a depiction of Winged Victory. Based on the goddess Victoria, or Nike in Greek mythology, Winged Victory is a personification of the Mexican people and dates to the revolution against Spanish imperial control.
