The Mexican Silver Libertad joins Mexico’s pre-Columbian heritage with its new culture of independence. Containing .999 fine Silver, these Silver bullion coins are guaranteed by Banco de México. The Silver Libertad is available in a wide range of sizes including 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz and 1 kilo. Because of the limited mintages of the Mexican Silver Libertad, they are not commonly seen in North American portfolios, making this coin ideal for both investors and collectors.

Identical to its Gold counterpart, the design of the Silver Libertad is based on the 50 Peso Centenario issued between 1921 and 1947. Covered in images that are strongly symbolic of Mexico’s rich history, the Silver Libertad is widely considered one of the most beautiful coins ever made. The reverse of all Libertads feature the Mexican National Seal, while the 1 oz, 2 oz and 1 kilo Silver Libertads also feature the seal framed by various coats of arms used throughout Mexico’s history. The obverse of the coin boasts the Winged Victory statue, symbolizing Mexico’s independence from Spain. Behind her are two volcanoes that are part of pre-Columbian Mexican mythology: Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl.

According to legend, Iztaccíhuatl was the daughter of a great king and Popocatépetl was a strong and fearless warrior. The king promised Popocatépetl he could marry Iztaccíhuatl if he returned from battle victorious. After several months of combat, a rumor spread to Iztaccíhuatl that Popocatépetl had been killed in the war. Devastated, the princess refused to sleep or eat and finally fell ill and slipped away. A short time after this, Popocatépetl returned to find his beloved dead. Heartbroken, he took Iztaccíhuatl’s body into the wilderness to watch over her where his fate mirrored the fate of the princess. As the earth reclaimed their bodies, the two lovers became great volcanoes, with Popocatépetl keeping eternal watch over Iztaccíhuatl.

La Casa de Moneda de México, the national mint of Mexico, is one of the oldest mints in the world. Established by the Spanish Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza in 1535 under the authority of the Spanish Crown, La Casa de Moneda de México became the first mint in the Americas. The first coins struck by the mint were the Silver 8 Reales followed by the Silver peso. The Silver peso became widely circulated throughout North America and Asia well into the 1800s and served as the inspiration for many modern currencies including the Chinese yuan, the Japanese yen and the American dollar. Since 1983, all coins minted by the national mint of Mexico are produced in San Luis Potosí and the original site of the mint is now the headquarters for Museo Nacional de las Culturas in Mexico City.

BU?

By  Orion

from Glendale, CA

3.0

I was expecting a BU 1982 coin just like the BU 2015 Libertad I received a couple of days ago. Looks BU without the loupe but boy this Libertad looks like someone chopped her left shoulder and forearm, breast, and abdomen with nicks and scratches all over the background. I thought I was buying BU but this is not a BU coin as advertised. Please have someone use a loupe before sending an advertised "BU" coin. This is just frustrating but I will buy more of these and see if you guys are checking your products before mailing them in. Thanks Apmex.

A must have for all Libertad lovers

By  Vin COdi

The current Libertasd is one of my favorites. It's a really unique and beautiful coin that everyone should own. I like them so much I felt like I had to own the first year, especially becasue it has a different look than the current Libertads - it's much smaller with a different image on both sides. When I got this in the mail I was blown away. It's wonderful, and I was even more elated to see that "LIBERTAD" is etched around the edge of the coin, something you don't see in the picture. It was a pleasant surp[rise and madfe me all the more happy with my purchase. get one now.

Libertad Evolution

By  Libertarian Aaron

from Charleston, SC

4.0

It's cool to see the evolution from the 80's design to today of the Libertad. I think most will find the newer version more appealing but it's great to have a variety for comparison. Not sure if value warrants small premium difference for stacking but certainly worth a couple for variety/comparison. It's a 30+ year old coin so has some very small scratches (not quite brilliant uncirculated) so reluctantly -1 star. Apmex's service was great as always.

Pros

  • Easy to Sell
  • Attractive Design
  • Historical Interest
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)
