Gold Libertad coins from the Mexican Mint are directly linked to the gold Centenario coin. The latter was issued by the Mexican Mint for the first time in 1921 to mark the nation’s centennial celebration of independence, while the former is the modern gold bullion coin from the mint.

The Mexican Mint revived the Centenario design on its Libertad Series in 1981 when it released the Gold Libertad for the first time, and again in 1982 when the Silver Libertad debuted. These coins form the backbone of the mint’s annual bullion program and are the official bullion coins of the nation in their respective metals.
For the Gold Libertad, the Mexican Mint offers extremely low mintage figures across five weight options. There is a 1 oz gold coin that debuted in 1981 with a ½ oz and ¼ oz coin, and as of 1991 there are also 1/20 and 1/10 oz Gold Libertad Coins available for purchase.
The 1/10 oz Gold Libertad Coin typically has the highest mintage figure among the fractional-weight coins, though it still maintains very low levels overall. The highest mintage came in 1992 during its second annual release, with 50,777 coins struck. In more recent years, the 1/10 oz coin has seen production shrink from 4,100 in 2015 to just 300 in 2017.
On the obverse of the 2018 1/10 oz Gold Mexican Libertad Coin you’ll notice the image of Winged Victory. This design was originally based upon the goddess of Victory from Roman mythology, but has been modernized by the Mexican Mint in the 21st century. The current depiction is similar to the 22-ft tall statue of Victory found atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column erected in 1921.
The reverse of all 1/10 oz Gold Mexican Libertad Coins features the modern coat of arms for the nation of Mexico. This design is the latest version used by the government, depicting a golden eagle locked in battle with a serpent on a cactus branch.
