The 2 oz Silver Libertad has proven particularly popular with investors since it was introduced in 1996. That first year of issue remains the most popular with a mintage of 50,000 coins in total. While many of the other weights in the series, such as the 5 oz silver coin, saw mintage records nearly beaten in 2009 as the Great Recession drove increased demand for silver, that was not really the case for the 2 oz silver coins. For example, the 5 oz Silver Libertad actually saw a new mintage record set in 2009 when 21,000 coins were sold, beating its debut mark of 20,000 coins. The 2 oz silver coin came close, but at 46,000 coins sold in 2009, remained well behind the mark set in 1996 when the collection debuted.
On the obverse side of the 2021 2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad Coin is the modern coat of arms for Mexico in the center of the design field. The modern coat of arms features a golden eagle locked in battle with a serpent from its perch. Around the outer rim of the design field, you will find 10 historic versions of the national seal. The most important of these may be the one in the 12-o’clock position. This is the Codex Mendoza and was created in 1541 by the Aztecs as a representative symbol of the founding of Tenochtitlan. It is the inspiration for all versions of the Mexican coat of arms featured on this side.
The reverse field of 2021 Silver Mexican Libertads comes with a vision of Winged Victory. The origins of Winged Victory’s symbolism in Mexican society date to the early-19th century revolution that saw Mexico throw off the shackles of Spanish colonial control over the course of a decade-long war in order to establish an independent state.
