The Silver Mexican Libertad coins bears iconic imagery from Mexico’s past, particularly its struggle for independence from Spain. On the obverse side of each coin is the image of Winged Victory. She is the angel of victory in Mexico, and a statue of her likeness was erected in Mexico City during the 1920s as the nation celebrated the centennial of its War of Independence.
Also included on the obverse are two volcanic peaks, named after ancient Aztec lovers. It is said that when Popocatepetl discovered that his lover Iztaccihuatl had taken her life, believing that he was dead, he carried her body into the mountains and laid her to rest. He then laid down to die on the mountain top next to her, keeping a vigilant eye on her forever. The volcanic peaks are named in their honor.
The reverse side of each coin bears the image of the national coat of arms. Mexico’s coat of arms displays a bald eagle resting atop a cactus as it battles a serpent. Around this image on the reverse are 10 different versions of the coat of arms used by Mexico since it earned independence from Spain.
