On the obverse of all Silver Mexican Libertad Coins is the image of Winged Victory, but she is not alone in this design. Winged Victory was a symbol of resistance to the Mexican people during their revolution against Spain. Her image appeared first on the gold Centenario in 1921, as well as on the Mexican Victory Independence Column in Mexico City. She is accompanied by the twin volcanic peaks in the background named Popocatepetl and Izztacihuatl after a pair of Aztec lovers.
The reverse of the 2018 5 oz Silver Mexican Libertad coin bears the modern version of the coat of arms for Mexico. Immediately surrounded by engravings of a wreath and “Estados Unidos Mexicanos,” with an outer design containing 10 historic versions of the coat of arms for Mexico.
In Mexico City, the Mexican Mint was opened in 1535 by Spanish conquistadors who wanted to refine silver and gold for shipment back to Europe. The Mexican Mint today coins bullion and circulation currency for the federal government of Mexico.
