The Mexican Mint strikes the Libertad coin on an annual basis in both gold and silver. While the Silver Libertad is available in bullion, proof, and proof-like versions, the Gold Libertad is only available in bullion and proof. The first Proof Gold Mexican Libertad was struck in 1989, with just 704 ½ oz coins produced.
Since 2005, the Mexican Mint has produced the Proof Gold Mexican Libertad in a 1 oz variety and four fractional-weight coins. The 1/20 oz coin is the smallest in the series, and is produced in similar numbers to the 1/10 oz, ½ oz, and 1 oz coin each year.
On the obverse of each 2010 1/20 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad you’ll see the statue of Winged Victory. Symbolic of Mexico’s victory over Spain in the War of Independence, the wreath crown in her right hand represents the nation’s freedom to govern itself and the broken chains in her left symbolize Spain’s broken control of the country.
The reverse side of Libertad coins features the coat of arms. On the 1/20 oz coin, the modern coat of arms is in the middle and is surrounded by the nation’s official name, “Estados Unidos Mexicanos.” Translated into English, that reads United Mexican States.
Proof Gold Mexican Libertads are struck at the Mexican Mint using special planchets and new die casts. Each planchet is struck multiple times to create a contrast between the frosted design set and deeply-mirrored background field.
