2013 Mexico 1 oz Silver Libertad BU

As low as $9.99 per oz over spot!

The 2013 1 oz Silver Libertad has a limited mintage of 774,100 pieces. This low mintage attracts both investors and collectors making these coins scarce in the marketplace.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Individual coins are presented in plastic flips. Multiples of 20 will be packaged in APMEX tubes.
  • Eligible for Precious Metals IRAs.
  • Obverse: Victory statue of Mexican independence in front of volcanic mountains Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, surrounded by the weight, purity and date.
  • Reverse: Mexican national seal with an eagle sitting atop a cactus surrounded by symbols representing Mexico’s 10 provinces.

Shown on the obverse are Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, two volcanoes that overlook the Valley of Mexico. These volcanoes tell a story of two lovers from warring families, similar to Romeo and Juliet. The volcanoes represent the warrior Iztaccíhuatl mourning the death of his beloved Popocatépetl.

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.

Real Nice Coin

By  Len

from East Hanover, NJ

4.0

I purchased this coin because it was new for 2013. I liked the lower mintage and the design on both obverse and reverse which does not vary much year to year. I think that the craftsmanship could be a bit better (as compared to Canadian Maples, for example) but this is quite an attractive design and is always popular with collectors.

Pros

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

Not as Nice as the Picture

By  Houston C

from Caalifornia

2.0

I bought it to add variety to my collection. Nothing is "great" about this coin. The relief is too weak and the reverse is unattractive. I'm surprised at all the five star reviews. Good luck on resale; most dealers will conisder this a generic 1 oz round rather than a premium coin. I'm glad I only bought 5.

Pros

  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Weak Relief

Nice coin; interesting images on reverse

By  Lonnie

i got this for collecting value, retirement investment, or to pass on to my children. i own MANY American Silver Eagles, but i wanted to diversify to both Canadian & Mexican bullion coins. Reverse side has Mexican National Symbol (Eagle on Catus holding Snake) as it has changed over the years.

Pros

  • Easy to Sell
