One of North America’s most popular bullion collections, the Mexican Libertad from the Mexican Mint, is back with its latest release of gold and silver coins. The coins of the Mexican Libertad Series are famously offered with much lower mintages than its competitors from the United States Mint American Eagle Series and Royal Canadian Mint Maple Leaf Series. JM Bullion is proud to offer a wide range of 2022 Mexican Gold Libertad and 2022 Mexican Silver Libertad Coins, with various options already in stock.
Since the debut of the Mexican Libertad coins in the 1980s, the series from the Mexican Mint has offered the same design concepts on the obverse and reverse fields of the coins. The obverse side of 2022 1 oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coins (for example) includes the Mexican coat of arms. The national seal consists of a Mexican golden eagle in left-profile relief. The eagle is perched on a prickly pear cactus with its wings raised as it uses its talons and beak to battle a serpent. All coins have this design, along with an oak-and-laurel wreath and an inscription of the nation of issue above.
For select weights in the series, notably the 1 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz, and 1 Kilo coins in silver and the 1 oz gold coin, you will find an additional design element on the obverse. These coins have a ring around the boundary of the obverse field that includes 10 historic versions of the coat of arms of Mexico.
On the reverse side of coins like the 2022 1 oz Mexican Gold Libertad Coin, you will find the image of Winged Victory. This iconic symbol is based on the ancient goddess Victoria, also known as Nike, and features slight-left-profile relief on the obverse field. She is depicted with powerful wings, a laurel wreath in her right hand, and a set of broken chains in her left hand. Her statuesque figure is shown at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column with the mountains of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl in the background.
When you shop the range of 2022 Mexican Gold Libertads available from JM Bullion, you will find options from the three major product lines. This includes the Brilliant Uncirculated coins in five weights, as well as the traditional proof coins in all five weights. The Proof Gold Libertad offers individual capsules for each coin with a combination of frosted designs and mirrored background fields. Reverse Proof Mexican Gold Libertads, one of the fastest-selling coins in the collection, have mirrored design elements set against frosted backgrounds.
Similarly, the 2022 Mexican Silver Libertads offer something for both investors and collectors. JM Bullion carries both Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Libertads and Proof Silver Libertads. The most obvious difference between the Silver Libertad and Gold Libertad collections, other than the metallic content of the coins, is the addition of 2 oz and 5 oz silver coins in the former collection. In total, Silver Libertads come with 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, and 5 oz silver coins in BU and Proof.
Mexican Libertad coins were first issued in 1 oz weights in both metals in the 1980s. The Gold Libertad debuted first in 1981, followed by the Silver Libertad in 1982. The 21st century has seen far greater stability in the series with reliable, annual offerings. The Silver Libertad does also come in Reverse Proof and Antique finishes, with Reverse Proof coins not yet available in 2022 and the Antique coins suspended as of 2019.
With limited mintages, 2022 Mexican Libertad Coins are not likely to last for long.
