Proof Gold Libertads were introduced by the Mexican Mint in 1983 with only a 1 oz gold coin available. The next release came in 1989 with only a 1/2 oz gold coin issued. Modern coining started in 2004 when a 1/4 oz gold coin was issued. This was followed by the 2005 rollout of all five coins now available. For the first time, the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz gold coins were all offered in the same year. This continued from 2005 to 2011, was suspended in 2012, and resumed in 2013.
All of the 2021 Proof Gold Mexican Libertad 5-Coin Sets come with individual capsules for each of the coins. The coins and capsules are set in individual slots in the box. The housing includes a wooden display box and a shipping box to house all items together. The boxes have the name “Banco de Mexico” included.
The obverse of 2021 Proof Gold Libertads in this five-coin set includes the modern coat of arms for Mexico. In the center of the design field, you will find the Mexican golden eagle devouring a rattlesnake while perched on the arm of a prickly pear cactus. The seal includes the nation of issue and a wreath made of oak and laurel. On the 1 oz gold coin, you will find the 10 historic versions of the seal used throughout Mexican history. At the 12 o’clock position, you will see the original design that inspired the coat of arms. This eagle design comes from the 1541 Codex Mendoza, an Aztec codex that chronicled the history of the Aztec Empire and its rulers.
On the reverse field of the coins in the 2021 Proof Gold Mexican Libertad 5-Coin Set is an image of Winged Victory. Based on the goddess of victory, this female figure is winged and holds a wreath in her right hand with broken chains in her left hand.
