The Mexican Mint introduced the first Proof Silver Libertad coins in 1983 with a 1 oz silver coin. There were no coins struck in 1984 or 1985, and the mint resumed production of the 1 oz coins in 1986. Through 1991, the 1 oz coin was the only option available. In 1992, the Mexican Mint introduced a series of four fractional-weight coins that included a ¼ oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz option alongside the ½ oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coin.
All of the 2018 ½ oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad Coins available to you here today come with a protective plastic capsule to ensure the fine condition of the coins from the Mexican Mint. The ½ oz Proof Silver Libertad has one of the higher mintage figures in the proof range, but with just 7,000 coins struck in 2018, there are few of these coins available for purchase for collectors.
On the obverse of all 2018 ½ oz Proof Silver Libertad Coins, you’ll find the modern coat of arms for Mexico. Unlike the 1 oz and larger coins which feature 10 historic depictions in a ring around the modern design, the fractional weights have only the modern design. It depicts an eagle battling a serpent on a cactus branch with the lower half surrounded by a wreath and the upper half surrounded by the words “Estados Unidos Mexicanos.”
The reverse side of the 2018 ½ oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad Coin features the image of Winged Victory. Her figure is based upon the Goddess of Liberty, the same figure Americans see when viewing the Statue of Liberty and other depictions of Liberty. This image of Winged Victory is also found as a statue atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City.
