When Mexico launched the centennial celebration in 1920 of the opening shots of its War of Independence, the first symbol to come to mind was the Angel of Independence. Representative of the perseverance of the Mexican people during the long war with Spain, a statue of the winged angel was erected in central Mexico City. The next year, the image was honored on the Centenario gold coin.
Though the Centenario has since been discontinued, the image of the Angel of Independence lives on with its inclusion on the 2015 1/10 oz. Silver Mexican Libertad coin. Joining the winged angel on the Libertad coin series are the iconic Mexican volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, and the national coat of arms.
On the obverse side of each 2015 Silver Mexican Libertad coin is the Angel of Independence. Featured in the center of the coin’s design, she stands in the foreground as the twin peaks of the volcanoes rise toward the heavens in the background. Engravings on this side include the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and “M” mint mark.
The reverse side of the coin bears the national coat of arms for Mexico. In the emblem, an eagle is perched atop a cactus as it battles the deadly grip of a serpent. Unlike the full-weight coins in the series, only the modern coat of arms is featured on the reverse of fractional-weight coins such as the 2015 1/10 oz. Silver Mexican Libertad.
La Casa de Moneda de Mexico, or the Mexican Mint, is a decentralized entity within the federal government in Mexico. The Mint bears the sole responsibility of producing coinage for the government under the direction of the Bank of Mexico.
