The Gold Libertad Coin is known for its historical design. The Centenario gold bullion coin was first minted in 1921, on the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain. The designs on the Centenario were created by Emilio del Moral to celebrate that independence. The Gold and Silver bullion coins of the Libertad Series feature those original designs of the Centenario coin. Mexico is proud of its freedom from Spain, and this is commemorated in the Mexican Libertad Coin series. Silver.com currently has the 2015 1 oz Gold Mexican Libertad Coin available for purchase.

Wrapped around the outer edge of the coin are 10 past versions of the national Coat of Arms used throughout history. Each of them features a golden eagle, often times holding a snake in its beak.

La Casa de Moneda de Mexico, the oldest mint still operating in North America, produces the Gold Libertad Coin series. The gold series had a rough start. After producing 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz coins in 1981, the mint didn’t produce any gold coins for the next 10 years. Then in 1991, the mint produced 1/20 oz and 1/10 oz coins in addition to the 3 weights previously produced in 1981. These 5 weights were produced from 1991-1994, when the mint halted production again until 2000. The mint didn’t produce any gold coins in 2001, however, in 2002 started regularly producing the 5 weights of the Gold Libertad coins again. Mintage numbers for all 5 weights have been extremely low since production restarted in 2002, even being as low as 500 1 oz coins in 2003. All of the Gold Libertads are minted in .999 pure gold.
