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.

I ordered one of these

By  Richie Rich

from Sacramento, Ca

4.0

I am slowly working on having one of every year, so I ordered one of these. I probably should keep trying the random coin orders until I get to the nitty gritty. I got this and it is in very great shape. I also ordered 20 BU condition random years, and 20 cull condition random year coins. For the 20 BU coins I actually got a full roll of unopened 1985 coins, so.... I didn't need to buy this single coin. In the random 20 cull condition coins I got three 1985 coins, and those are actually almost, or maybe just as good as this one. So, once again I didn't need to order this as a single. I will say this, for the newer year, single coin orders, those coins look near flawless. Those made some other coins that I thought were very nice, not look so nice anymore. This particular single coin order of 1985 didn't standout as being better than the other 1985 coins that I got. For the newer years you will can see a pretty big difference if you order the BU coins.

coin received with dents and scratches

By  Randy

from Champaign, Illinois

2.0

I bought this '85 libertad as my birth-year piece but the item received is scratched badly on the skirt with a few noticeable dents elsewhere. I didn't have the time to look at the item closely until a few days ago and found to my disappointment that the item I paid 10+ dollars over spot price is flawed!!Yikes! It makes me feel bad because I bought it as my birth-year coin and I probably cannot exchange it with apmex because it's no longer within the 15-day limits.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Pretty good

By  Jesse

from Hayward California

5.0

Based on what I have seen so far, one could expect to see some slight imperfections due to the age of the coins minted in the 80's. This coin however, came in pretty good shape considering it's age. Overall, this was a very satisfying purchase and I am happy to own an older coin that is still in good shape.

Brilliant Uncirculated Mexican Onzas

By  Kev

from Houston, TX

5.0

I acquired these and other early 1980's Onzas because of their purity and the way they felt in my hand. Buy some for yourself and you will see what I mean. Their Brilliant Uncirculated condition makes them shiny and better looking than I expected. This is not a dainty silver coin. So far I have noticed minimal contact and bag marks. Their is no downside for me regarding the Mexican Onzas...except maybe the premium but even that is not unreasonable.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Mexican Silver
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand
  • Mint Condition
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Beautiful thick coin

By  DaN

from Seattle

5.0

this is very unique silver coin older libertad designs are smaller and thicker which makes so attractive to hold and fondle. I haven't yet to find a similar form factor one downside is that there are no air-tite available for this specific coin, because it's too thick. I have searched everywhere but I couldn't find any. then I took my silver panda into H40 capsule and used empty silver panda casing to hold libertad! it's rattles a bit but this is only capsule thick enough to hold this coin!

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Attractive Design

Beautiful Coin

By  Bert

from Texas

5.0

Beautiful coin, I like the older style Libertad design very much especially the printed edge. I'll pick these up from time to time as the price over spot is reasonable.

Pros

  • Mint Condition
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design

A great looking and "sounding" coin. You can slide it up in the air and the sound that comes off this coin is able to be picked up. A ping (or ting) test produces a beautiful sound that lasts for a second or two. Try doing that with a 1oz bar!
