Proof Gold Mexican Libertads were first introduced in 1983. That was a one-time issue of 1 oz gold coins. That was followed by a one-time issue of a 1/2 oz gold coin in 1989, and again with a 1/4 gold coin in 2004. Since 2005, the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz coins have been issued every year with the exception of 2012 when none of the weights were made available.
The obverse of the 2019 1 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad features the image of Winged Victory. Based on the Roman goddess Victoria, the image of Winged Victory is often associated with overcoming death and emerging victorious in war. This symbol has been prominent in Mexico since the nation’s independence from Spain in 1821. Winged Victory is modified for use in Mexican culture to hold broken chains in her left hand that represents the nation’s freedom from colonial control.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Gold Libertads, the Mexican Mint offers a total of 11 versions of the Mexican coat of arms. The modern symbol is in the center with a golden eagle on the arm of a cactus battling a serpent. The outer design field features 10 historical versions of the same seal.
