Gold Mexican Libertads have been available at the Mexican Mint since 1981, but production of all versions of the coin were sparse through the 1980s and 1990s. It wasn’t until 2002 in the BU Series and 2005 in the Proof Series that annual production commenced. In 2018, a new version of the Gold Libertad was offered with the release of two Reverse Proof Gold Libertad weights. Right now, 2021 1 oz Reverse Proof Gold Mexican Libertads are available to purchase online from Silver.com.

Each 2021 1 oz Reverse Proof Gold Mexican Libertad available in this Silver.com listing comes with an individual acrylic capsule. The reverse-proof coins in this series feature mirrored design elements with frosted background fields for a unique visual contrast that is different from the traditional proofs in the series.
With a limited mintage of only 500 coins in 2021, the Reverse Proof Gold Libertad has doubled from the 2020 release, but is still below the first release. The 2018 debut saw 1,000 coins issued, while 500 coins were also issued in 2019. The 2020 release was extremely limited at just 250 coins in all.
The obverse of the 2021 Reverse Proof Gold Libertad comes with an image of Winged Victory. Her figure is shown here in three-quarter profile relief with a laurel wreath extended in her right hand and a set of broken chains in her left hand. This statue stands atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in Mexico City. The statue itself was produced in 1910 to mark the centennial of the start of Mexico’s war of independence, while the Victory Column was completed in 1921 to mark the centennial of the war’s conclusion and the formalization of Mexican independence.
On the reverse field of 2021 1 oz Reverse Proof Gold Libertads is a depiction of the Mexican coat of arms. Here, you will find the modern version of the seal in the center of the design element. It shows a powerful golden eagle on the perch of a prickly pear cactus as the bird battles with a snake. Around this design, you will find 10 historic versions of the same seal used throughout Mexican history.
