The Gold Mexican Libertad is the modern bullion coin of the nation, and is produced annually in both bullion and proof versions. Even though this is a modern proof coin, it has roots that date back to 1920. During the centennial celebration of Mexico’s independence, the Mexican Mint released a coin known as the Centenario.
That commemorative coin had a face value of 50 Pesos, but was not intended for use as currency. It featured images representative of national history and Mexican pride. The angel of independence featured prominently on the obverse, along with the volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, which were named after a pair of ancient Aztec lovers.
On the obverse side of this modern coin, a refined image of Winged Victory (as the angel of independence is known) is in the center. The volcanic peaks are visible in the background, and the coin’s face value, metal content, weight, and purity are engraved around the outside of the design set.
The reverse bears the coat of arms for Mexico. While the 1 oz coin in this series encircles the modern seal with 10 historic versions, the 1/10 oz coin has less surface area, and only the modern coat of arms is featured.
The Mexican Mint strikes its Proof Gold Mexican Libertad using special planchets and a multi-strike process with brand-new die casts in order to achieve the contrasting appearance of the design set and its background field.
