Fractional-weight Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coins were not introduced until 1992, six years after the one ounce coin was first produced by the Mexican Mint. The fractional-weight coins include a 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, and ¼ oz option in addition to these ½ oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coins.
The obverse face of all Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coins feature the image of Winged Victory. The Angel of Independence, as she is also known, is representative of the nation’s successful struggle for freedom from Spanish colonial rule starting in 1820. She is often featured holding a crown of leaves in one hand and the broken chains of servitude in the other.
On the reverse is the coat of arms for Mexico. First unveiled during the nation’s War of Independence, the use of an eagle battling a serpent identifies Mexico’s fight to free itself from its European colonial rulers. It is encircled by the words “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” above and a wreath below.
Mexico’s sovereign mint is known as the Mexican Mint, and is controlled by the government and Banco de Mexico. In addition to producing Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coins, the mint also produces paper bank notes and coinage for the nation of Mexico.
