Gold Mexican Libertad coins have been available from the Mexican Mint since 1981, but the regularity of the production for the different versions has varied. For example, the bullion coins debuted in 1981, were issued for four years in the 1990s, and didn’t become annual issues until 2002. The Proof Gold Libertads have only been an annual issue since 2005. Today, 2018 1/10 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertads are available to you online at Silver.com.

The Proof Gold Libertad coin was issued three times in total prior to 2005. The first coin was issued in 1983 as a 1 oz proof gold specimen. The next release occurred in 1989 when a 1/2 oz proof gold coin was produced. The next break was much longer, with another Proof Gold Libertad not made available until 2004 when the 1/4 oz gold coin was introduced. In 2005, the Mexican Mint established regularity in the series with a 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz Proof Gold Libertad.
All of these 2018 1/10 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertads are available to you with frosted designs overlaying mirrored background fields. The coins are housed individually in this release in a protective plastic capsule.
The obverse face of the 2018 1/10 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad depicts the image of Winged Victory. She is shown here as you would find her at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column in the center of Mexico City. The statue of the Angel of Independence that stands atop that column was built in 1910 to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the Mexican war for independence. In 1921, the Mexican Victory Independence Column was constructed to mark 100 years of freedom from Spain, and the Angel was placed at the top of the column.
On the reverse side of 2018 1/10 oz Proof Gold Libertads is a modern version of the Mexican coat of arms. The image depicted here includes the powerful golden eagle battling with a serpent from its perch on a cactus. “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” is engraved above the design of the seal, with a wreath below to frame the seal.
