The Gold Mexican Libertad coin was released in 1981 with a 1 oz and 1/4 oz coin in addition to the 1/2 oz Gold Libertad coins. These three weights were available only for 1981 and then discontinued by the Mexican Mint until 1991. When the coins re-emerged from the mint in 1991, a 1/10 and 1/20 oz coin had been added.
1/2 oz Gold Mexican Libertad coins have long had one of the lowest mintage figures among the five options in the Gold Libertad bullion series. With the lowest mintage among the three coins in 1991, the 1/2 oz Gold Libertad has also had the lowest mintage figure among the gold bullion coins in every year since 2000 with the exception of 2016.
Each of the 1/2 oz Gold Mexican Libertad Coins in this product listing has a BU condition. Coins in this condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws that can include breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the production process.
The obverse of the Gold Libertad coin has the image of Winged Liberty. Based upon the Greek Goddess of Victory, she was a symbol for the Mexican independence movement during the 19th century and stands today atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City.
On the reverse of all 2017 1/2 oz Gold Mexican Libertad coins you’ll find the coat of arms for Mexico. The coat of arms includes a bald eagle in battle with a serpent on a cactus, which is surrounded by a wreath above and a ribbon below. This image is the most recent depiction of the coat of arms for Mexico.
The Mexican Mint was formed in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors. Originally used to refine gold and silver from Central and South America, the Mexican Mint eventually became the primary coining facility of the Spanish Empire for its Western Hemisphere colonies.
