The 1/20 oz Proof Silver Libertad is often the most popular coin among the fractional-ounce weights as the price of silver rises. For example, during the Great Recession, the 1/20 oz Proof Silver Libertad outsold the 1/4 oz and 1/2 oz option because it was a more affordable option during a period that saw silver climb to its record-high price per ounce.
The obverse of 2021 1/20 oz Proof Silver Mexican Libertads depicts the national coat of arms of Mexico. In this design, there is a prickly pear cactus that includes a Mexican golden eagle perched on its arms as it attempts to devour a rattlesnake. The design is based on a symbol from the Codex Mendoza, a codex written by the Aztecs in 1541 to capture the history of the fallen empire and its emperors.
On the reverse side of the 2021 Proof Silver Libertad is an image of Winged Victory. This statue of Winged Victory is shown as it currently stands at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column. However, the statue of Winged Victory was constructed more than a decade before the column as it was commissioned in 1910 to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of Mexico’s war of independence. The column was erected later, in 1921, to mark 100 years from the war’s conclusion.
