The Gold Libertad series of coins from the Mexican Mint made a one-year debut in 1981 with 1 oz, ½ oz, and ¼ oz options. There were no Gold Libertads struck for the next decade, but when the series returned in gold bullion from the Mexican Mint it had expanded to its present-day collection of five total weights. The 1/10 oz Gold Libertad has been available in all years of Gold Libertad issue since 1991.
On the obverse of all Gold Mexican Libertad Coins are a series of intricate and historic designs for the Mexican people. First and foremost is the image of Winged Victory, or Winged Victoria. Based upon the ancient Roman religion’s goddess of victory, Victoria, her figure was inspirational to the Mexican people during their decade-long revolutionary war with Spain.
The other images on this side of the coin are subtle in the background, but significant nonetheless. Visible from Mexico City are the twin volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl. Ancient Aztec lovers, the duo died in a Romeo-and-Juliet story. One was a princess and the other a warrior. When the king sent his daughter’s lover to war, she was told he died in battle. Distressed, she died of a broken heart. When he returned alive, he too succumbed to death via heartbreak at his beloved’s death.
For the reverse of the 1/10 oz Gold Mexican Libertad coin, the Mexican coat of arms is featured in the center. It is encircled by the nation’s name in Spanish above, “Estados Unidos Mexicanos,” and a wreath below.
