  • Description:

    Every year, the Mexican Mint produces the Mexican Libertad series. Collectors who invest in this series know not to expect a new design, since the classic is so popular. What they do expect is a .999 pure silver bullion coin that is in brilliant uncirculated condition and goes perfectly in their personal compilation. Mexican history and tradition are also represented in these coins, making them great conversation pieces. To set out on the long journey of collecting the Libertads for every year might seem daunting but to collectors and silver investors alike, that journey is worth it.

    The 1985 Mexican Libertad's reverse is of Mexico's national seal. This seal included an eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus, fiercely holding a snake in its mouth. This design is to represent Mexico's triumphant victory over Spain when they gained their independence. The obverse design is of a winged Victoria, goddess of victory, standing on a pillar. She is the emblem of independence to the Mexican people and stand proudly on one foot. She has large yet graceful wings and her arms are outstretched, welcoming whoever wants victory over their adversaries. "1 onza plate pura" is inscribed around the rim of the coin along with "1985" and "ley .999." These inscriptions state the purity, authenticity, and year of the coin. The Mexican Mint also left their mintmark, "MO," on the obverse. Behind the goddess are two volcanoes, Popocat├ępetl and Iztaccihuatl, infamous for their folklore. These volcanoes are believed to be once star-crossed lovers, subjected to an eternity side-by-side each other. To this day, the volcanoes are active and a part of Mexican tradition. Whether you are looking for a collection to start for yourself or for someone else, the Mexican Libertads are a great way to start!
