Gold Mexican Libertad coins are the direct successors of the historic gold Centenario. The latter coin was produced from 1920 to 1947 by the Mexican Mint and resulted from the centennial celebration of the nation’s independence in 1920. The modern Gold Libertad is the official bullion coin of the nation.
The Gold Libertad is produced annually in bullion and proof. The proof coin features five different weights, and was first introduced in only this ½ oz weight. Since 2005, the Mexican Mint has produced these coins each year in limited numbers.
On the reverse side of all Proof Gold Mexican Libertad coins is the image of the coat of arms. Mexico’s official seal features an eagle on a cactus branch, with the bird locked in battle with a serpent.
The obverse of the 2011 ½ oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad features Winged Victory. A statue bearing her likeness stands in the center of Mexico City, and is considered the official symbol of the nation’s capital.
Each of these stunning proofs is struck using a special coining process at the Mexican Mint. Specially made planchets are struck multiple times with new die casts to create a stark contrast between the design set and background field. Founded in 1535, the Mexican Mint is the oldest operating facility in North America.
