The Proof Silver Mexican Libertad has an interesting minting history. It was first introduced in 1983, just one year after the bullion version. However, it was only available in a one ounce weight and just 998 coins were struck. Following a two-year absence, the coins returned in 1986 with regular annual production since.
In 1992 the program expanded to include four fractional-weight coins, in 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, ¼ oz, and ½ oz weights. Further expansion came in 1996 with the introduction of the 2 oz and 5 oz coins. These 5 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coins have experienced swings in demand, ranging from lows of just 100 coins struck in 1999 to a high of 5,000 in 2009.
Each 2015 5 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad in this product listing has a near-perfect proof grade of PF69 from the NGC. Coins with this certification exhibit full, original mint luster, as well as a maximum of two minor detracting flaws on the surface.
An ultra-cameo proof is a coin with stunning contrasts between its design sets and background fields. In this particular case, the designs have a strong, frosted finish while the background field bears a deeply-mirrored, clear appearance.
On the obverse you’ll find the most recent image of Winged Victory, along with engravings of the coin’s weight, metal content, year of issue, and purity. The reverse displays the modern coat of arms for Mexico, which is encircled by 10 historic versions of the seal.
