Silver Mexican Libertad coins have gone through two versions of Winged Victory on the reverse field during the history of the series. When the collection debuted in 1982, it revived the exact design of Winged Victory from the 1921 gold Centenario coin with Victory more prominent in the foreground with Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl less visible in the background. In 1996, a modern depiction of Winged Victory came to the coins with her figure in three-quarter side profile atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column with the mountains more visible in the background.

The obverse side of 2021 Silver Mexican Libertads comes with a modern version of the Mexican coat of arms. The national seal features a powerful golden eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus as its battles with a rattlesnake. The nation of issue is inscribed on this side of the coin in Spanish above the seal.
Mexico’s coat of arms has changed numerous times since independence was gained. All versions are inspired by imagery from the Codex Mendoza, an Aztec codex that was created around 1541 to chart the history of Aztec rulers and their conquests.
On the reverse of 2021 1/4 oz Silver Libertads is a depiction of Winged Victory. The female personification of Mexico, her figure is based on the Greek goddess Nike, the goddess of Victory who was worshipped by victorious generals following war. Victory is shown here at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory column holding a wreath high in her right hand and a pair of broken chains in her left hand.
