Silver Libertad coinage from the Mexican Mint debuted in 1982 with a 1 oz silver bullion coin and in 1983 with a 1 oz Proof Silver Libertad. While the bullion coins remained in production going forward, the proof coins were not released in 1984 or 1985 and returned in the 1 oz weight in 1986.
Overall, Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coins across all seven weights have been issued continuously since 1996. The 1 oz coin was the only option from 1986 to 1991. Four fractional weights were issued in 1992 and joined by a 2 oz and 5 oz coin in 1996.

On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad is the depiction of the nation’s official seal.

The 1 oz, 2 oz, and 5 oz silver coins in the Proof Libertad collection have this modern coat of arms surrounded by 10 historic versions.
The reverse of the 2018 Proof Silver Libertad Coins features Winged Victory. Her figure stands tall atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City and was erected there on the 100th anniversary of the nation’s victory in its revolution against Spain. Winged Victory clutches the broken chains of servitude in one hand and the laurel wreath crown of independent governance.
