  • Description:

    When one first looks at the Mexican Libertad, they are struck with awe by the beauty of the winged Victoria on the obverse. In ancient Roman mythology, Victoria was pronounced the goddess of victory. Many nations used her image as a symbol to represent their success and independence. Mexico chose Victoria to grace the obverse side of the silver coin as a statement of how far they have come has a country and a nation. On the coin, her wings are outstretched and her slender body is stabilized on a small pillar. The drape that is covering her bottom half is cascading in the wind, insinuating she is light as a feather but strong like a horse. Behind the goddess are the two historic volcanoes, Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl. These volcanoes take part in Mexican mythology, wherein they are thought to be two lovers who desired to sit side-by-side for eternity. The gods of the mountains answered their plea by turning them into mountains and their passion still burns to this day by the volcanoes remaining active. "1 onza plata pura" is written around the rim of the coin meaning, "1 ounce of pure silver." The coin's year of mintage, 2008, and "ley .999," are also inscribed to guarantee the purity of the coin. The reverse of the coin displays the Mexican Coat of Arms, an eagle perched on cactus and eating a snake. There are also 10 smaller symbols encircling the seal to honor Mexico's 10 provinces.

    The Mexican Libertad bullion series started in 1982 by the oldest mint in the Americas: the Mexican Mint. Although the coin's design never changes, this series is viewed as timeless and a treasured piece of Mexican history by silver coin collectors worldwide. These silver coins' popularity is ever increasing, intriguing those looking to invest in silver everywhere.
