This APMEXclusive® two-coin Mexican Silver set has an extremely limited mintage of only 1,000 sets. This is the second year in a row APMEX has partnered with Banco de México to release these special sets. Not only does this Silver Libertad set have a limited mintage, but it also features the special Reverse Proof Silver Libertad, which is only found in this 2-coin set. Each Proof Silver Libertad and Reverse Proof Silver Libertad in this set contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.

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.

The Reason to buy Mexican Libertads

By  Zipster

from Rochester, NY

5.0

The Reverse side shows a posture of the Winged Victory with outstretched arms, and a view of the valley of Mexico City. On the obverse the National Coat of Arms is surrounded by ten different coats of arms from Mexico’s historical past. The Libertad is minted by the national government of Mexico, and thus a legal tender coin.The coin is .999 fine silver.The Libertad has the benefit of being a quasi-numismatic coin. In addition to it’s inherit silver value, it also has become a favorite of astute collectors. It has a track record of delivering more “bang for the buck” vs. other silver coins due to its low mintages and beauty. The Proof/Reverse set offers even more in the way of rarity with app. mintages of only 1000-1500 sets offered world-wide. The beauty and rarity of these coins offers the intelligent collector a rare opportunity in today's Numismatic market. What with the many competitors offering millions of supposedly rare coins these Libertads truly are the cream of the crop both in rarity and beauty.

Happy with my first premium silver coins

By  Stephen

This was my first purchase of a higher-premium product and I couldn't have been happier! The coins are beautiful and the box was surprisingly nice! After seeing the value of these going up over time, I will definitely be keeping my eyes out for other good opportunities, even if it is at a higher starting premium.

A beautiful Lbertad set of matching Proof/Reverse with limited mintage

By  AndrewDS

from Rockville, MD

5.0

And proof Libertad gets my attention, but a reverse proof matching with a proof is even better. And low mintage of these sets (1000), makes they attractive to have and, eventually to sell. I bought 2 sets, so I could always sell one, but still have one for myself.

Pros

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