Mexican silver libertad coin
The first silver Libertad bullion coin was minted and released in 1982 by the Casa de Moneda de Mexico (Mexican Mint). The Mexican Mint is by far the oldest mint in the America’s (est 1535) and still minting some of the worlds finest silver and gold bullion coins.
Each silver Libertad coin features the coat of arms of Mexico which is a eagle with a snake in its mouth on the reverse side of the coin, and the image of the Independence Angel in front of a landscape of two volcanoes (Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatéptl) on the obverse side of the coin.
The obverse of the Libertad has gone through some minor changes since its release in 1982, but has always featured the Independence Angel which is the symbol of Mexico City. The silver Libertad is offered in a number of different sizes for collectors 1/20 oz,1/10 oz, ¼ oz, ½ oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz and 1 kilo.
Each silver Libertad bullion coin is released in a .999 silver purity state, and minted to a very high standard. Silver Libertad coins have also been released in a silver proof version for collectors, these can either be bought as single coins or as complete sets with the different sized coins.
