Silver Mexican Libertad coins are produced on a yearly basis by the Mexican Mint in bullion, proof, and proof-like versions. The bullion program is the longest-running and most diverse in the series, debuting in 1982 and consisting of seven available weights as of 1996.
On the obverse face of the coin is the image of Winged Victory. When the Spanish colony of Mexico fought for its independence, the Angel of Independence was believed to be watching over the Mexican people in their cause. Her likeness was used then, and stands today on the Victory Column in the center of Mexico City.
The reverse of each Silver Mexican Libertad coin features the coat of arms for the nation. In the center of the design is the modern depiction of the nation’s seal, while 10 historic versions used since independence in 1828 are featured in a circle surrounding it.
The Mexican Mint is the oldest operating facility in the Western Hemisphere. Founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors, the mint is owned today by the federal government and operated by Banco de Mexico.
