The 1/20 oz Gold Libertad Coins have very low mintage figures, much like the other Gold Libertads. Though the second year of issue for the program had the highest among fractionals at 65,225, the 1/20 oz Gold Libertad has not surpassed 10,000 coins struck in any given year since 1992. In fact, the 1991, 1993, and 1994 coins had 10,000 and production has not surpassed 5,000 coins since the 2000 1/20 oz Gold Libertad.
On the obverse of all Gold Mexican Libertad coins is the effigy of Winged Victory. Captured in a slight left-profile relief, this is a depiction of Winged Victory based upon the goddess of Victory as found on the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City. The column and statue were erected in 1921 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the nation’s freedom.
Engravings featured on this side of the coin include important markers. These include the weight, purity, and metal content of the gold coin. You’ll also find an “OM” mint mark for the Mexican Mint on this side of the coin.
The reverse of 2018 1/20 oz Gold Mexican Libertad Coins feature the coat of arms for Mexico. The fractional-weight Gold Libertads bear only the modern version of the coat of arms, while larger-weight coins have a surrounding design that includes 10 historic versions of the seal’s design.
The Mexican Mint was opened in 1535 by Spanish colonial rulers. It is the oldest operating mint in the Western Hemisphere, and once struck coins for all Spanish colonies in the Western Hemisphere.
