Each year the Mexican Mint produces the Silver Libertad coin in three different series: bullion, proof, and proof-like. The bullion coins were introduced in 1982 and originally only available in 1 oz. It wasn’t until 1991 that the mint introduced four fractional-weight coins. In addition to the ¼ oz. coin, the mint produced a ½ oz., 1/10 oz., and 1/20 oz. coin. After more than 30 years of production, the Silver Mexican Libertad coins maintain the same basic images used since the coins were introduced.
On the obverse side of each 2015 ¼ oz. Silver Mexican Libertad is the image of the winged Angel of Independence. A symbol of Mexican resistance and eventually victory in the War of Independence, she is visible atop a pillar in the center of the coin. In the background, the nation’s iconic twin volcanoes rise up to meet the horizon. Engravings include the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content, as well as an “M” mint mark.
The reverse side features the nation’s coat of arms. In the emblem, a bald eagle struggles to subdue a serpent as it sits atop a cactus. Engravings include the phrase “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” above and a wreath below.
The Mexican Mint was founded by Spanish conquistadors in 1535, making it the oldest operating facility in the Americas. Unlike the full-weight coins, the fractional-weight coins feature only the modern coat of arms for Mexico as the smaller space on the back makes it impossible to include the various historic depictions of the emblem as found on the 1 oz., 2 oz., and 5 oz. coins.
