Proof Silver Libertad coins from the Mexican Mint debuted in 1983, one year after the bullion version of the Silver Libertad. While the latter remained in production, the Proof Silver Libertads were available in 1 oz silver in 1983, not in 1984 or 1985, and again only in 1 oz silver through 1991.
In 1991, the Mexican Mint began to expand the options for those collecting silver in the Libertad Series. The mint first added four fractional-weight coins ranging from 1/20 oz and 1/10 oz up to ¼ oz and ½ oz. From 1992 to 1995, no further additions were made to the collection. In 1996, a final expansion occurred with the introduction of a 2 oz coin along with these 5 oz Proof Silver Libertads.
The 2018 5 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad coin has the highest reported mintage figure in the series along with the 2009 issue. Since 1996, the coins have typically had an annual mintage below 1,500 coins. Just eight of the 22 issues of the 5 oz Proof Silver Libertad have surpassed the 1,500 mintage mark and only three releases have surpassed 2,500.
On the reverse of the 2018 5 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad Coin is the design of Winged Victory. Her figure is symbolic of freedom and self-governance to the Mexican people. Part of Mexico’s culture dating back to the 19th century, today her figure stands tall atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City.
The obverse of the 5 oz Proof Silver Libertad coins includes the modern coat of arms for the nation in the center of the design field. Surrounded by the name of the nation and a wreath, you’ll also find the outer design field occupied by 10 different historic depictions of the same design.
