The Mexican Mint used some of the nation’s most iconic images in the creation of its Silver Mexican Libertad coins in 1982. The first of these is the image of Winged Victory, also known as the Angle of Independence. Her figure was a reminder of the freedom Mexicans earned through victory in the War of Independence with Spain.
Winged Victory holds the broken chains of bondage in her left hand, as a symbol of the nation’s freedom from Spain. In her right hand, she holds up a wreath crown as a symbol of independent rule.
The other important image used on the coin is that of the nation’s coat of arms. In the design, a bald eagle is featured battling a serpent from its perch atop a cactus. This imagery is meant to represent the fighting spirit of Mexico in the fact of the serpent, indicative of Spain’s grip on the nation.

The image of Winged Victory appears on the obverse of the coin, along with the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and year of issue. On the reverse you’ll find the coat of arms for the nation of Mexico.
