Silver Mexican Libertad coins were first struck in 1982 in their modern form, but the designs on the coin date back to the 1920s. At that time, the nation of Mexico was celebrating 100 years of independence from Spain. Some of the nation’s most beloved icons were chosen for inclusion on the reverse and obverse design of these coins.
On the obverse side of the coin is the image of Winged Victory. The angel, featured as a statue in the center of Mexico City, is visible in the foreground of the coin. In the background, the twin volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl are visible, both of which are important in ancient Aztec legends.
The reverse side of the coin is graced by the coat of arms for Mexico. Surrounding the modern depiction of the coat of arms are numerous historical versions of the coat. The coat of arms of Mexico includes a bald eagle perched on a cactus as it fights a serpent. The engraving “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” is also visible.
Each of the coins in this listing has a near-perfect grade from the PCGS. Coins in this condition have their full, original luster, and feature no more than two detracting flaws, contact marks, or blemishes.
These coins were all produced at the Mexican Mint. Founded by the conquering Spanish in the 1535, the mint is one of the oldest in the world.
