The history of the 1 oz Silver Libertad
The 1 oz Silver Libertad was first issued in 1982 and in 1991 became the first Silver bullion coin to be issued in smaller sizes of 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/2 oz. The Libertad Silver coin, unlike other sovereign Silver bullion coins, does not display a face value. Other world coins have a face value well below their actual worth (for example, the Silver Maple Leaf has a $5 face value). Buying Silver coins like the Silver Libertad is a good way to expand your Precious Metals investments while at the same time holding a piece of history.
Why invest in the 1 oz Silver Libertad?
Buying Silver coins like the Libertad is a good way to boost investments. The price of Silver Libertads is comparable to some Silver bars but these Silver bullion coins are backed by the Banco de Mexico. The 1 oz Silver Libertad does not have a face value, which some investors believe provides flexibility and buying power in times of crisis or economic upheaval. Each Silver coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver and is eligible for Precious Metals IRAs. Of all the world coins, the Silver Libertad is gaining in popularity with investors and collectors, due to its beauty and also because there is no advance notice of each year’s mintage, so collectors like the idea that they might buy into a year that ends up having a low mintage.

Understand what affects the Silver price when investing in Silver coins, bars and rounds.
When you are buying Silver coins, it is a good idea to understand the factors that influence the price of Silver. Whether buying world coins or Silver bullion bars and rounds, the price of Silver is constantly on the move. The Silver spot price, which is the basis for Silver coin prices, is affected by current events, market speculation, and supply and demand. For example, if a government makes a Silver purchase, it will be much larger than a 1 oz Silver Libertad (think in terms of multiple kilos versus smaller ounces), and the effect on the Silver market could be immediate.
