The Gold Libertads at the Mexican Mint were introduced in 1981, though it was the 20th century before most of the BU and Proof coins were available on an annual basis. In the Proof Gold Libertad Series, the coins were first struck in 1989, but annual production did not commence until 2004 in a single weight and 2005 in all five available weights.

The first Proof Gold Libertad was issued by the Mexican Mint in 1989, some eight years after the first BU Gold Libertads were issued. That first release came with only a 1/2 oz gold coin. No additional Proof Gold Mexican Libertads were issued until 2004 when the 1/4 oz gold coin was released for the first time. In 2005, the mint commenced annual production with another 1/4 oz gold coin alongside 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz gold coins.
All of the 2021 1/20 oz Proof Gold Mexican Libertads available in this listing come to you with beautiful proof visuals. Traditionally, proof coins come with frosted design elements overlaying mirrored fields for visual contrast. The coins available in this listing come in protective plastic capsules.
On the obverse side of 2021 Proof Gold Mexican Libertads is an effigy of Winged Victory. A symbol of the Mexican resistance during the nation’s war of independence against Spain, Winged Victory stands today as a symbol of Mexican independence. Since 1921, the centennial mark for Mexican independence, Winged Victory has watched over Mexico City at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column.
The reverse face of the 2021 1/20 oz Proof Gold Libertads comes with an image of the modern coat of arms of Mexico. This design shows a golden eagle in left-profile relief with its wings raised as it battles a serpent within the clutches of its talons. This all takes place as the group is perched on a prickly pear cactus.
