The designs featured on the Silver Mexican Libertad were originally introduced in 1921 on the Centenario gold coin series. Struck to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the opening battle in Mexico’s War of Independence, the coin displays iconic Mexican images including the Angel of Independence, two well-known volcanic peaks, and the nation’s coat of arms.
On the obverse side of the coin is the winged Angel of Independence. Perched atop a pillar in the foreground is the angel, while the twin volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl rise toward the heavens in the background. The revere side of the full-weight coins, include the 2015 1 oz. Silver Mexican Libertad, is the image of the modern coat of arms. Surrounding the emblem are depictions of various historical renderings of the coat of arms.
The Mexican Mint bears sole responsibility for producing the Silver Mexican Libertad coin for the Bank of Mexico. A decentralized agency within the federal government, the Mexican Mint is one of the world’s oldest operation mints. It was first opened in 1535.
