The Mexican Gold Libertad is considered by investors and collectors alike to be one of the most beautiful coins in the world. These Gold coins are of limited mintages so they are becoming increasingly rare and are not often seen in North America. Coins minted between 1981 and 1988 contain 1 oz of .900 fine Gold, while coins produced since 1991 contain .999 fine Gold. Backed by Banco de México, the Mexico 1 oz Gold Libertad is available in sizes of 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz.

The design on the Gold Libertad is based on the Centenario, a 50 Peso Gold coin issued between 1921 and 1947. The iconography of the Gold coin is full of rich Mexican tradition and history. The reverse of all Gold Libertads features the Mexican National Seal, while the 1 oz Gold Libertad features the seal framed by various coats of arms used throughout Mexico’s history. The obverse proudly honors two symbols synonymous with Mexican heritage. In the foreground is the Angel of Independence, symbolizing Mexico’s independence from Spain. In the background are two volcanoes: Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl. These two volcanoes are part of pre-Columbian Mexican folklore.

The legend of Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl tells that 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.

The national mint of Mexico, La Casa de Moneda de México, is one of the oldest mints in the world. The mint was established in 1535 by the Spanish Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza under a decree from the Spanish Crown that created this first mint in the Americas. The first coins struck at this mint were the Silver 8 Reales coins followed by the Silver peso which was widely circulated throughout the Americas and Asia well into the 19th century. The Silver peso served as the inspiration for many modern national currencies where it was circulated, including the Chinese yuan, the Japanese yen and the American dollar. Since 1983, all coins minted by La Casa de Moneda de México are produced in San Luis Potosí and the original site of the mint is the current headquarters for Museo Nacional de las Culturas in Mexico City.

Not worth the premium

I ended up buying another just for the benefit of the doubt. Out of the 3 pieces I've received, all had imperfections. I've made the conclusion that you'll only get mishandled or copper spotted proofs. This latest one had bad scratches on it. I'm not a picky person, but with a premium that high, I would expect better quality. If you're looking into gold I'd recommend the eagle or maple, they are closer to spot and in better condition.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Hard to Sell
  • Poor Condition

It's okay..

I bought this piece as an entry into gold investing. I was looking to get a BU as advertised but ended up getting a copper spotted proof. I returned it just to have a different copper spotted proof sent back to me. I know these coins are slim pickings but I was really hoping to enjoy the BU strike, the copper spotting takes away from the beauty of the coin.

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Happy Purchase

Figured these weren't too much more expensive than the more common gold eagles. Thought it was a good idea to have a couple of them just in case their premiums rise in the future if more people start to collect them. I was happy to land a 2006 with my "random year" purchase and the coin was defect free using the naked eye. I could easily see myself picking up another one or two of these in the future.

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Attractive Design
  • Value (low premium over spot)
