The Mexican Silver Libertad is a popular series of bullion coins minted by the Mexican government. The coins are made from .999 fine silver and are available in various sizes, including fractional denominations. Here's some information about fractional Mexican Silver Libertad coins:

  • Design: The obverse side of the coin features the "Winged Victory" statue in the forefront, with the Mexican volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl in the background. The reverse side displays the Mexican coat of arms, depicting an eagle perched on a cactus while clutching a serpent in its beak.
  • Denominations: The fractional Mexican Silver Libertad coins come in several denominations, including 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz. The 1 oz coin is the most common size, while the fractional denominations provide more affordable options for collectors and investors.
  • Legal tender: The Mexican Silver Libertad coins are legal tender in Mexico. However, their market value primarily derives from their silver content and collectability rather than their face value. The face value of the fractional coins corresponds to a fraction of one Mexican peso.
  • Limited mintage: The Mexican Silver Libertad coins, including the fractional versions, are often minted in limited quantities. Limited mintage adds to their appeal among collectors and can potentially increase their value over time.
  • Collectability and investment: Mexican Silver Libertad coins are sought after by both coin collectors and precious metal investors due to their beautiful designs, historical significance, and silver content. The fractional versions allow collectors and investors to diversify their holdings and acquire smaller increments of silver.
  • Packaging: Fractional Mexican Silver Libertad coins are typically packaged in protective capsules or tubes, depending on the quantity purchased. This helps preserve the coins' condition and prevents scratching or damage.

When collecting or investing in fractional Mexican Silver Libertad coins, it's important to consider factors such as their condition, rarity, and the current market demand and live spot price for silver.


Mexican Silver Libertad Design

The Mexican Silver Libertad coins have featured the same design elements on the obverse and reverse since 1982. When the series was introduced in 1982, the Mexican Mint used designs from the Gold Centenario coin from 1921. The obverse of the coins featured the modern coat of arms of Mexico from 1982 to 1999. This design includes a Mexican golden eagle in left-profile relief with its talons and beak holding a rattlesnake as the bird sits perched on a prickly pear cactus. Coins produced from 1982 to 1995 show the old angel design.

The original depiction of Winged Victory appeared on the reverse of the Mexican Silver Libertad in 1982. The design portrayed her figure in front-facing relief. She held up a wreath crown in her right hand with broken chains in her left hand. There is a notched edge design element with the mountains of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl in the background field. In 1996, a new design was released featuring a new portrayal of Winged Victory. The design featured the statue at the top of the Mexican Independence Victory Column, but now featured her image from a three-quarter side portrait instead with greater visibility of the mountains in the background field.

The obverse of the coin features Mexico's coat of arms, with the design updating in 2000 to also picture the historical coat of arms of Mexico. The reverse of the beautiful coin tells the legend of two star-crossed lovers, princess Iztaccíhuatl and warrior Popocatépetl, turned into volcanoes by the Aztec gods, so they can finally be together. The angel of Victory depicted on the reverse was changed in 1996 to show a three-quarter side profile.
