Gold Mexican Libertad coins from the Mexican Mint are unique among counterparts for a number of reasons. Chief among them may be the unique status of the coins as legal tender. While the coins are considered Mexican coinage, there is no face value attached to any of the coins.
Instead, Banco de Mexico issues the coins with a so-called “floating value.” Should an individual decide to actually use one of the Proof Gold Mexican Libertad coins to settle a commercial debt, they would have to call the bank to find out that day’s value of the Libertad. Of course, given the value of the precious metal content, its face value would be far less.
All 2017 ¼ oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad Coins purchased here today ship in their original mint capsules. These capsules protect your investment for years to come, while also ensuring the matte finish on the design sets and contrasting mirrored background are not damaged by handling or the elements.
On the obverse of all 2017 ¼ oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad Coins you’ll find the image of Winged Victory. She has been a symbol of Mexican independence for more than a century now. Her figure holds a wreath above her head as a sign of free governance and holds the broken chains of bondage to Spain in her left hand.
The reverse of all Proof Gold Mexican Libertad Coins has the coat of arms for Mexico. In the case of fractional-weight coins such as this one, only the modern version of the coat of arms can fit on the smaller surface area.
Built in 1535, the Mexican Mint is the oldest operating facility in North America. Located in Mexico City today, it is run by Banco de Mexico and overseen by the federal government of Mexico.
