Design History of the Mexican Gold Libertad

The artwork on the Mexican Libertad is so beautiful partly because it tells a story. There is an ancient Mexican legend recounting the tale of princess Iztaccíhuatl. Her father sent her beloved, Popocatépetl, to war in Oaxaca, promising Popocatépetl that when and if he returned, he and Iztaccíhuatl could marry. However, Iztaccíhuatl's father secretly believed the young lover would never return and so arranged for several other suitors to approach and try to charm his daughter. But Iztaccíhuatl learned of her father's assumption and the arrangements he made. Believing that Popocatépetl could not possibly survive the war, and knowing she could simply never marry another, Iztaccíhuatl made what she felt was her only escape and killed herself with a dagger. When Popocatépetl returned to discover his beloved dead by her own hand, he carried her to the top of a mountain, hoping the cold would revive her. Instead, he succumbed to the cold and froze to death. God blanketed them in snow, turning them into mountains.

Iztaccíhuatl's mountain is called La Mujer Dormida, or The Sleeping Woman, because it resembles a woman sleeping on her back. Popocatépetl became a volcano, raining fire and destruction down upon the earth in eternal rage at the senseless death of his beloved. It is this passionate romance that defines the landscape depicted behind the glorious Winged Victory on the Gold Mexican Libertad. The aching beauty of this story perfectly complements the striking loveliness of this coin.
