  • Description:

    Being only native to the Americas, the prickly pear cactus is featured in the national seal of Mexico. Standing on top of the cactus is a hungry eagle, holding a snake with its locked beak. This design is the Mexican Coat of Arms and is pictured on the reverse of every silver Mexican Libertad coin. Turning the coin over to the reverse, we see a beautiful statue of a topless woman, delicately balanced on a tall pillar. This image is of the goddess, Victoria, and has been used as a symbol of victory since the ancient Roman times. The Mexican Mint has used this design before on their Centenario coin. This gold bullion coin was minted in 1921, to honor Mexico's independence from Spain. This symbol is still treasured by the Mexican people and is widely used on their currency. The famous volcanoes, Popocat├ępetl and Iztaccihuatl, are pictured behind the goddess as a reminder of Mexican mythology that has shaped Mexican culture. Stated in Spanish around the edge of the coin is, "one ounce .999 pure silver," and the coin's year of mintage, 1983. The Mexican Mint's mark is inscribed next to Victoria's head and reads as, "MO."

    The Mexican Mint has quite the reputation of beautiful, quality coins that have been the basis for national modern currency. The Mexican Mint is also one of the oldest mints among the Americas, starting production over 500 years ago. Each coin is guaranteed to be one ounce pure silver and comes in brilliant uncirculated condition. The Mexican Libertad series started 1982, and their popularity has increased in popularity ever since. The Mexican Mint has chosen not to change the design yearly, similar to the silver eagle, but to keep the design consistent. The only part of the Libertads that change are the mintage of the coin year to year. If you are looking to buy silver Libertads, enjoy our vast collection!
