The history of Gold Libertad coins
The design found on Gold Libertads and Silver Libertads was originally used on 50 Peso Gold coins issued between 1921 and 1947. The obverse of Silver and Gold Libertad coins features imagery relating to the pre-Columbian Mexican legend of Popocatépetl, a renowned warrior who was in love with Iztaccíhuatl, daughter of a tribal king. The image on the Libertad and Mexican Gold Onza depicts the two volcanoes named after these ill-fated lovers, who were only allowed to marry if Popocatépetl was victorious in battle with a rival tribe. Popocatépetl was victorious, but rumors returned to Iztaccíhuatl that her suitor had died in battle and she died of a broken heart. The volcanoes on these Mexican Gold coins are named after these two lovers, with the volcano Iztaccíhuatl as the sleeping maiden and Popocatépetl watching over her for eternity.

Understand what Brilliant Uncirculated means when buying Mexican Gold coins.
When collecting Mexican Gold coins, or any Gold coins, the condition of the coin is very important if you want to possess a coin not only for its Gold content, but also its numismatic, or collector, value. The Mexican Gold Onza, or any Gold coin, that is designated a Brilliant Uncirculated coin is a coin that has never been in circulation and has retained its original mint luster. Brilliant Uncirculated Gold Libertads and other BU coins are also described as MS (mint state) and can be graded from MS-60 to MS-70 by an official coin grading service such as PCGS or NGC, two of the top services.
