Gold Mexican Libertad coins are produced on an annual basis by the Mexican Mint in both a proof and bullion version. The proof version of the coin is struck using a special coining process. Specially made planchets are loaded into coining presses at the mint and struck several times by the die cast, creating the stunning finish visible on both sides of these coins.
The Proof Gold Mexican Libertad is currently available in a total of five weights. In addition to the 2010 ½ oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad, there is also a 1 oz, ¼ oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz coin available.
On the obverse side of each coin you’ll find the image of Winged Victory. Featured atop a pillar, this depiction of the angel of independence is a replica of a statue standing in the center of Mexico City that was erected in 1920 to honor 100 years of Mexican independence from Spain.
The reverse side of all Proof Gold Mexican Libertad coins bears the official seal of the nation. The Mexican coat of arms features an eagle atop a cactus branch as it battles to control a serpent. In the seal, a wreath encircles the bottom of the symbol, while the name “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” is engraved above.
