Libertad coins are part of a diverse bullion and proof coin program from the Mexican Mint. The coins originated as Gold Libertad coins introduced first in 1981, followed by the Silver Libertad in 1982. Today, an additional platinum version of the coin is available only as a proof-like coin.
The Silver Libertad coins are perhaps the most popular in the series, with a diverse offering that rivals that of many gold coin programs. The Silver Libertad is available in seven total weights, ranging from the 1 oz, 2 oz, and 5 oz coin to the fractional 1/20, 1/10, 1/4, and 1/2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad coins.
On the obverse of all 2017 1/4 oz Silver Mexican Libertad Coins you’ll find the effigy of Winged Victory. Depicted as the embodiment of Mexican independence, she has featured on the top of a statue pillar in the center of Mexico City since 1920, where it was erected in 1920 as part of the country’s centennial celebration of independence.
The reverse of all Silver Libertad coins includes the image of the Mexican coat of arms. While the larger weight coins in the series also feature all of the nation’s 10 historic coat of arms images, the fractional-weight coins have only the modern depiction. The coat of arms bears the image of a bald eagle locked in battle with a serpent on the branch of a cactus.
All 2017 1/4 oz Silver Mexican Libertad Coins in this listing are available in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, but you may notice the presence of minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the striking of blanks at the mint.
The Mexican Mint was founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors refining the region’s gold and silver for shipping back to Europe. Today, the mint is owned by the federal government and operated by Banco de Mexico.
