The Mexican Silver libertad
The silver Libertad has proven to be one of the worlds most popular silver bullion coins on the market today, these bullion coins have been very popular with silver investors as well as coin collectors, this is due to the very small premium over the silver price at the time of sale. With an easily recognisable design of Mexico’s Independence Angel with wings spread out the silver Libertad has to have one of the best designs ever to grace a silver bullion 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.
Designs on the Silver Libertad
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.
