The Mexican Mint introduced its Proof Silver Libertad range of coins in 1983, one year after the Brilliant Uncirculated series of coins debuted. It would be 1986 before the coins were an annual-release option for collectors. Following that date, the Mexican Mint would expand the series three times in total. During the second expansion of the series in 1996, the Mexican Mint introduced 2 oz and 5 oz silver coins into the collectible proof range.
All of the 2021 5 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins in this product listing come with a protective plastic capsule to house the specimen. You will find that each coin has frosted design elements overlaying mirrored background fields for brilliant contrast among the physical fields of the coin.
The obverse side of 2021 Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins features 11 versions of the Mexican coat of arms. The most significant of these, in size, is the modern coat of arms featured in the middle of the design field. It features a golden eagle on a prickly pear cactus as it battles to eat a rattlesnake. Around the outer rim of the design field, you will find 10 historic versions of the national seal.
Of utmost importance in that design rim is the seal you will find at the 12 oclock position. This image of the eagle comes from 1541 and was featured in the Codex Mendoza. The Aztec codex offered a visual history of the Aztec Empire and its rulers, with this exact eagle symbol present in the codex.
On the reverse field of 2021 Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins, you will find the statue of Winged Victory. Her winged figure holds up a wreath crown in one hand and a set of broken chains in the other. She towers over Mexico City at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column and you will notice the mountain peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl in the distant background field.
