The coins of the Proof Gold Libertad Series come with variable mintage figures each year. The Mexican Mint establishes a new mintage cap on the collection each year. Over the course of the past 15 years when the series became an annual issue from the mint, the 1/4 oz gold coin has proven the most popular and is the only one to have a mintage cap above 2,000 coins in more than one year. All coins had a mintage of 2,100 in 2016, with these 1/10 oz gold coins surpassing 1,000 coins only four other times in 2011, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
All 2020 1/10 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertads listed here are available with proof visuals and a protective plastic capsule. The proof coins from the Gold Libertad Series have frosted design elements with mirrored background fields.
Winged Victory is found on the obverse design of 2020 Proof Gold Mexican Libertads. The image of Winged Victory is shown here as she can be found at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City. She is a symbol of freedom from Spanish oppression when Mexico was but a colony of the great European empire. Winged Victory stands tall with her wings straight out behind her figure, her right hand holding a wreath crown, and her left hand clutching broken chains.
The national coat of arms for Mexican can be found on the reverse side of 2020 1/10 oz Proof Gold Libertads. The modern design of the coat of arms depicts a powerful Mexican golden eagle with its talons and beak struggling to wrestle a rattlesnake. The eagle and snake are on the perch of a prickly pear cactus with a wreath of oak and laurel beneath the seal.
Mexico’s coat of arms is inspired by the Codex Mendoza, a visual history of the Aztec Empire and its rulers. The Codex Mendoza features a rudimentary depiction of an eagle devouring a rattlesnake. The Aztecs were told by their gods to found Tenochtitlan on the site where they witnessed an eagle devouring a rattlesnake.
