    The history of Mexican coinage dates back to the colonial period when Mexico was known as New Spain. The Spanish colonial mint in Mexico City, established in 1535, played a crucial role in producing coins for the Spanish Empire. Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821 and continued to mint its own coins, eventually adopting the Mexican Peso as its official currency.

    The obverse of the Mexico 1/2 Ounce Silver Libertad Proof 2016 features the iconic image of the Winged Victory statue, also known as the "Angel of Independence." This statue is a prominent symbol of Mexico's struggle for independence and stands tall on the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City. The statue is encircled by the words "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS," which translates to "United Mexican States," the official name of Mexico. On the reverse side of the coin, a magnificent portrayal of the Mexican coat of arms is depicted. The coat of arms features an eagle perched on a cactus, devouring a snake—a powerful image with deep historical significance. Surrounding the coat of arms are various historical versions of the Mexican national emblem.
