Each 2016 1/2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad coin offered by Silver.com today is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. A BU coin shows no signs of wear and tear, although you may notice a number of minor detracting flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from striking.
The images on the obverse face of the coin are important in Mexican history. Winged Victory is symbolic of the nation’s successful struggle for independence from Spain. The background features two volcanic peaks whose names tell the story of a pair of Aztec lovers.
Named Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, the peaks reference a pair of ancient Aztecs. Popocatepetl was a warrior who was in love with the king’s daughter, Iztaccihuatl. She promised to wait for his return, and her father promised to bless their marriage. However, her father told Iztaccihuatl that her lover had died in battle when really he was alive. She died of grief, and some say the mountain peak resembles a woman lying down on her back.
On the obverse side of the 2016 1/2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad coin is the image of the volcanic peaks in the background, with Winged Victory rising in the foreground atop the victory column in Mexico City.
The reverse face of the coin includes the image of the Mexican coat of arms. On the larger coins in the series, all 10 historic versions are included around the modern seal. However, the smaller surface area of the 1/2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad makes that impossible.
