  • Description:

    Mexico's version of a gold bullion coin, the Mexico Gold Onza is very rare to come by in North America! The Mexico Gold Onza coins, also known as Libertads, never exceeding a mintage over 600,000! The Mexico Gold Onza was first produced in 1981, carrying the highest mintage for the gold onza. Since it wasn't minted every year, like its silver counterpart, the availability of the Mexico Gold Onza is quite scarce. Apart from their scarcity, collectors are also drawn to the pure gold coin since it was minted at the oldest mint in North America, Casa de Moneda, de Mexico. Established in 1535, the Mexican Mint was the result of a decree, from the Spanish Crown, that required the opening of a mint. The Mexican Mint's most influential coin was the silver peso, that was used in both Americas. The silver peso inspired the creation of other modern national currencies, such as the US silver dollar, the Chinese yuan, and the Japanese yen.

    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. 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. 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. 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 Mexico Gold Onza barely stays in our inventory for long so don't miss this opportunity to own a rare coin!
