The Libertad coins from the Mexican Mint are one of a few around the globe which enjoy legal tender status, but do not feature a face value engraving assigned to each weight. The coins could, in theory, be used in commercial economic transactions to settle debts. However, doing so requires the user to contact Banco de Mexico for the current floating rate of the coin.
Mexican Libertad coins debuted in 1982 in silver with just one weight available, the 1 oz coin. There were no additions to the series until the four fractional-weight coins were introduced in 1992, with the 2 oz and 5 oz Silver Libertad bullion coins making their debut in 1996.
On the obverse of the Silver Libertad coin you’ll find the design concept made popular on the original gold Centenario coin. Although it has been updated for modern issue, that design features the background image of Mexico’s two famed volcanic peaks of Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl with the statue of Winged Victory in the foreground.
The reverse of the 2017 2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad Coin includes the design of the nation’s coat of arms. The 2 oz coin, along with the 1 oz and 5 oz option, feature the modern coat of arms surrounded by the image of the historical versions used by the country dating back to its war of independence in the 1820s.
