Each coin has a matte appearance to the design elements that contrast exceptionally with the mirrored background field.
Proof Gold Libertad Coins have the lowest mintage figure of any coin in the Mexican Libertad Series from the mint. The single highest mintage year came in 2016 when all five weights had a mintage of 2,100 coins. That came just two years after the lowest mintage year in 2014, when four the five weights had a mintage of just 250 coins. The lone exception that year was the ¼ oz coin at 350 in total.
The obverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad Coin includes the design of Winged Victory. Erected atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City in 1921, Winged Victory has been a beloved symbol of the Mexican people since their struggle for freedom from Spain in the early 19th century.
On the reverse of the fractional-weight Proof Gold Mexican Libertad coins, like these 1/10 oz specimens, you’ll find only the modern coat of arms. It features a bald eagle grappling with a snake and is symbolic of the nation’s struggle to free itself from the grasp of Spanish oppression.
The Mexican Mint was founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors to both refine local gold for transport to Europe and to coin currency for Spanish colonies in the Western Hemisphere. Today it is controlled by Banco de Mexico and the federal government and produces both bullion coinage and sovereign currency.
