  • Description:

    The Mexican Libertad bullion series started in 1982 and produced the one ounce Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof coins. The main difference between the BU coins and Proof coins is that the Proof coins have a mirror-like finish to them, wherein the Bu have a frosted matte finish. The Proof Libertads collectively contain much lower mintages than the BU versions and are also harder to obtain. The Mexico 1/2 Ounce Silver Libertad Proof 2017 contains 1/2oz of .999 pure silver.

    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.
