Gold Libertad coins are available from the Mexican Mint on an annual basis. The Proof Gold Libertads debuted in 1983 with the 1 oz coin, but didn’t enter full, regular production at the mint until 2005. Compared to other coin programs with fractional weights, the 1 oz Proof Gold Libertad has remained relatively popular, though it is not the highest seller annually.
On the reverse side of the 1 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad coin you’ll find the modern coat of arms for the nation of Mexico in the center of the design field. Surrounding the eagle and serpent are 10 different historical versions of the seal used since Mexican independence was gained nearly two centuries ago.
The obverse of all 2017 1 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad coins offers a variety of impressive design features. First and foremost is the image of Winged Victory. Her figure graces the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column, which was erected in the center of Mexico City in 1921 to mark the 100th anniversary of the nation’s revolutionary victory.
In the background field, you’ll find the image of twin volcanic peaks, both of which are visible from Mexico City in real life. Named for Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, the volcanoes honor the story of these ancient Aztec lovers who died from grief believing that the other had already passed away.
The Mexican Mint is located in Mexico City and is the sovereign mint of the nation. Controlled by Banco de Mexico and overseen by the federal government, the mint strikes bullion and commemorative coinage, as well as circulation coins and banknotes.
