The Mexican Mint first introduced reverse proof specimens in the proof range in 2015 with the release of the 1 oz silver coin in a reverse proof option. This continued as the only option through the next year, with the 2 oz and 5 oz silver coins gaining a reverse proof option in 2017. That wasn’t the only change to come in 2017 as the Mexican Mint also introduced a new antique option in each of these three weights as well.
All of the 2018 5 oz Reverse Proof Silver Mexican Libertads in this product listing come to you with individual packaging. Whether you purchase one coin or several, each one is individually packaged inside of a protective plastic capsule. The reverse proof visuals on the coin deliver frosted background fields with overlaying mirrored design elements.
Obverse imagery on the 2018 Reverse Proof Silver Mexican Libertad includes the statue of Winged Victory. Known as Victoria or the Angel of Independence, the statue is 22-feet tall in real life and stands atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in the heart of Mexico City. Her figure is a reminder of the success of the nation in freeing itself from the shackles of Spanish colonial oppression in the early 19th century. The background field includes images of the mountain peaks at Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.
Reverse designs on the 2018 5 oz Reverse Proof Silver Mexican Libertads boast 11 different versions of the national coat of arms. In the center of the design element is the modern version of the seal, produced on a larger scale than the 10 other designs. Those 10 designs around the outer edge of the design element represent the 10 historic versions used at different stages of Mexican history following its independence.
