One of the increasingly popular coins in the global precious metals marketplace is the Silver Mexican Libertad from the Mexican Mint.

Silver Mexican Libertad coins originated in 1982 as a bullion product available only a 1 oz weight. Unlike many other silver sovereign coin programs around the world, the Silver Libertad is also available in a variety of other weights currently, with a total of seven weights ranging from 1/20 oz to 5 oz.
Each 2015 1 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad offered on Silver.com today is a near-perfect proof specimen according to the NGC. Proof 69 coins feature their full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws.
The ultra-cameo designation is reserved for proof coins with a stark contrast between the design set and background field. The strong, frosted finish of the design gives it the visual appearance of floating above the deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse you’ll find the victory column from Mexico City, which bears the likeness of the Angel of Independence. A statue of her likeness was erected in Mexico City in 1920 as part of the nation’s centennial celebration of independence from Spain.
The reverse of all 1 oz coins in the program feature the modern coat of arms for Mexico in the center, flanked on all sides by 10 historic versions of the emblem. The Mexican coat of arms has always featured an eagle in battle with a serpent, resting atop its perch on a cactus branch.
