Each of the 2019 1/2 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad Coins from the Mexican Mint comes with an individual protective capsule to house the coin. Proof Silver Libertads have the traditional visual appeal of proof coins that includes frosted design elements with mirrored background fields.
The 1/2 oz Proof Silver Libertad coin is the largest of the four fractional-weight coins in this coveted collectible series. Unlike other 1/2 oz coins in various other silver bullion series, the 1/2 oz Proof Silver Libertad enjoys popularity on-part with or in excess of its fractional counterparts. While the 1/20 and 1/10 oz coins are typically the best-sellers among the smaller weights, the 1/2 oz coin outsold both in 2016 and 2017. When it doesn’t outsell the smaller weights, its mintage figure remains within touching distance of the popular, diminutive weights in the series.
On the obverse side of all 2019 Proof Silver Mexican Libertad Coins is a design known as Winged Victory. The image of Winged Victory first appeared on Mexican coinage in 1921 when the Mexican Mint issued the gold Centenario coin. That coin was struck with her image to mark the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain and was used through the 1970s on gold commemorative coins.
Winged Victory is featured on modern Silver Libertads in a design reminiscent of her appearance atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column. There she stands 17 feet in height and holds a crown wreath in one hand, with broken chains in the other hand.
The reverse face of 2019 1/2 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertad Coins features the coat of arms of Mexico. In this modern version of the design, a powerful eagle does battle with a serpent as the eagle is perched on the arm of a cactus.
