The history of Mexican Silver coins

Minted Mexican coins first began circulating in the 1530s. Prior to that, Mexican Silver coins and other Precious Metals coins did not exist, instead, the first of the conquistadors brought with them Castellano coins or used indigenous means of exchange. Unable to buy Silver coins or trade them, the early arrivals to Mexico would exchange cocoa, jade, coarse cotton blankets or patolcuachtli, which is duck feather quills filled with Gold powder. In 2015, Silver coins are still in circulation in Mexico, as the 20, 50 and 100 peso coins have an aluminum bronze exterior ring and a .925 Silver center.

Why invest in limited edition Mexican Silver coins?

This beautiful two-coin Mexican Silver set has an extremely limited mintage, as only 500 sets have been minted. These Silver Libertad coins have been released by APMEX in partnership with Banco de Mexico. Each set of these 2015 Silver coins features one Silver Libertad with a proof finish, and one with a reverse proof finish, the first-ever Libertad with a reverse proof finish. Buy Silver coins from the oldest mint in North America, with each 1oz Silver Libertad containing .999 fine Silver.

Understand the difference between Silver bullion with proof or reverse proof finish.

When buying coins, a proof coin is the finest quality coin made especially for collectors using a high-quality minting process which often includes striking the coin at least twice, giving the design even more definition. Proof coins have beautiful mirror-like fields (the flat, empty spaces) and frosted devices (the images that are raised up). Mexican Silver coins, or any coin, that is a reverse proof is struck with the same precision and method as a proof, except that the field is frosted and the device is mirror-like. The name reverse proof can sometimes cause confusion. When you buy reverse proof coins, the entire coin is in reverse proof finish, not just the reverse side of the coin.

Beautiful Set

By  Ryan

5.0

This set is definitely expensive when it comes to the spot price, but with it being the very first edition of the Libertad reverse proof, it's already selling for more on eBay. If you send them to get graded, you are talking double the price for Pl-69's and almost 4x the price if you get PL-70. It's a great investment.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Questionable purchase

I'm a HUGE APMEX fan, but I feel you got greedy with these beauties. I bought 2 sets. Amazingly they are still available. The FIRST time a Libertad special hasn't sold out in hours, or pre-sale for that matter. It's to bad, you could have started something special here with Banco de Mexico........ imo, you blew it and I wish I had only bout one set at the $399 price.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Hard to Sell

Happy with This Purchase from APMEX !!!

I am very Happy with the Very First of the Reverse Proof Libertads. APMEX gives me nothing to be unhappy with. I may make one suggestion to APMEX for the future, allow all of your customers an opportunity to get the Low COA's by packing them randomly so no one knows who will get Number 1. APMEX is the place to get the Best in Metals.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Nice to be able to add these to my collection of Libertads. The price was too high, but at least that meant I could get a set, unlike so many modern issues that are priced too low and sell out in seconds. Still happy to have my set #137!

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

Protect your proof and reverse proof finish Silver bullion.

Taking care of your Mexican coins with proof and reverse proof finish is very important to maintain their value. Handling Mexican Silver coins that have a proof or reverse proof finish is not encouraged, as the ultimate way to maintain their value is to always keep these unique Silver coins in protective packaging. These coins often come in a protective plastic coin flip or case that not only protects the coins but often provides authentication. Holding these coins in your hand may be too difficult to resist, in that case, many experienced coin collectors wear soft cotton gloves.
