To celebrate 100 years of independence from Spanish colonial rule, the Mexican Mint introduced a 50 peso gold coin. Known as the Centenario, this 50 peso gold coin was introduced as a circulation gold piece in 1921 and available through the early 1940s. Increasing demand for gold during World War II resulted in the coins being reintroduced in 1947 and being issued through 1972. When the Mexican Mint introduced a new gold bullion coin series in 1981, the Centenario designs were revived.
All of the 2021 1 oz Gold Mexican Libertads available in this product listing at Silver.com come with either individual plastic flips or tubes of 10 gold coins. These coins are all available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The coins of the Mexican Libertad Series are similar to the South African Krugerrand. Both coins are considered legal tender in the nation of issue, but neither of the coins has an actual face value assigned to the coin or marked on the surfaces.
On the obverse of the 2021 1 oz Gold Mexican Libertad is a depiction of Winged Victory. This figure dates back to Mexico’s revolution against Spain. It depicts the goddess Victoria, a figure often worshipped in the ancient world by victorious generals. She is shown in this design in left-profile relief with a crown wreath in her right hand and broken chains in her left hand.
The reverse side of 2021 Gold Mexican Libertads bears an image of the national coat of arms. The Mexican coat of arms featured here shows a Mexican golden eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus as it devours a rattlesnake. The eagle is shown on the prickly pear cactus with a wreath below and the nation of issue inscribed above.
