Silver Libertad coins are popular around the world for their limited mintages and exquisite design. The 5 oz Silver Libertads are produced in much lower numbers than their 1 oz Silver counterparts, creating even further collectible opportunity.
The 5 oz Silver Libertad has a large diameter of 65 mm, meaning the beautiful design of Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl behind the famous Winged Victory statue is shown in even greater detail. On the obverse, the detail in each of the Mexican coat of arms is magnified, making a classic design even more elegant.
The history of Mexican Silver coins
The history of Mexican Silver coins is strongly tied to the history of the oldest mint in North America: La Casa de Moneda de Mexico, also known as the Mexican Mint. The Mexican Mint was opened in 1535 by Spanish viceroy Antonio de Mendoza. The first Silver coins produced by Casa de Moneda included the Silver Eight Real and the Silver Peso, which was used not in Mexico, the Americas and even Asia. These Silver coins formed the basis of modern currencies including the U.S. dollar and Japanese yen. Since then, the Mexican Mint is most known for their Silver Libertad series, depicting well-known and iconic Mexican imagery.
