Mexican Libertad coins were first issued in 1982 as BU Silver coins, with that series the most regularly produced. The Mexican Libertad gold coins launched in 1981 with three BU Gold weights and in 1983 with one Proof Gold weight. However, these coins were not regularly produced until the early 2000s.
The BU Gold Libertad was not issued annually in all five weights until 2002. The Proof Gold coins were issued just three times prior to 2005, with one weight issued in each of the years of 1983, 1989, and 2004. In 2005, the Proof Gold Series finally got off the ground with the release of all five weights. Since then, only 2012 has been devoid of an issue of Proof Gold Libertads.
On the obverse of 2020 1/20 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertads is an image known as Winged Victory. This female allegory represents the goddess of victory from Greek and Roman mythology and is a symbol of Mexico’s victory over Spain in its revolutionary war. The female figure has powerful wings on her back, holds a wreath crown in her right hand, and clutches broken chains in her left hand. The mountain peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl are visible in the distant background field.
The reverse face of 2020 Proof Gold Mexican Libertads comes with the modern image of the Mexican coat of arms. The seal was last modernized in 1968 and is the 10th symbol of the modern state. This seal and all others are inspired by the image of an eagle devouring a rattlesnake from the Codex Mendoza, a design cataloged in 1541 by Aztec scholars charting the visual history of their emperors and empire.
These 2020 1/20 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertad Coins are available to you with individual acrylic capsules. The coins have frosted designs with mirrored background fields.
