1 oz Gold Libertads

The Banco de México’s Gold Libertad coin series features very low mintages and one of the most beautiful designs of all world coinage. While other bullion coins have unlimited mintages, often into the multi-millions, the Gold Mexican Libertads have extremely limited mintages.

Investor Advantages:

  • This series began in 1981 and contained 90% Gold. In 1991, the Gold content changed to 99.9% (.999 fine) and has remained ever since.
  • Beginning in 1994, Mexican Libertad coins have limited mintages on average of less than 5,000 coins per year and have remained very low ever since.
  • The 2015 1 oz Gold Libertad had a mintage of 4,800 coins, while the 1 oz Gold Eagle had a mintage of 626,500 coins that same year.
  • Back-dated Gold Libertad coins are difficult to locate and are rarely available in the U.S. market.

Benefit From the Enduring Value of Gold Libertad Coins

To this day, the design of the Gold Libertad reflects iconic Mexican imagery and maintains numerous links to the past. The obverse includes an intricate relief of Mexico's National Shield. Ten different national coats of arms surround the shield, as does the text "Estados Unidos Mexicanos." The reverse highlights two essential Mexican symbols. The Angel of Independence commemorates the nation's independence from Spanish rule. The background includes depictions of two important volcanoes, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl. Both have roots in Pre-Columbian Mexican folklore and represent the spirits of two heartbroken lovers.

When you invest in Mexican Libertad Gold Coins, you will also enjoy connections to the past. Since 1981, this has been the only Gold coin accepted as currency despite the absence of a face value stamp. Though this coin has been issued for more than three decades, its design has changed only minimally.

When you purchase Mexican Libertads from APMEX, you can rest assured your purchase will hold its value. Since these Gold coins have a limited mintage, they may also increase in value over time. La Casa de Moneda de México authorizes very low mintages each year, meaning there are relatively few in circulation. In 2015, for example, just 4,800 1 oz Gold coins were produced. These Gold coins are some of the most highly desired since they are not often available in the U.S. market.

Established in 1535 on a decree from the Spanish Crown to create the first mint in the Americas, La Casa de Moneda de México has been producing beautiful Gold and Silver coinage ever since.


Premium Appreciation Over Time

This Premium Appreciation Over Time matrix gives you a better idea of how the 1 oz Gold Libertads are trending with approximate value increases.* The percentage of change is an indicator of increased value over time.

All premiums are dollars over the spot price.


The additional cost of a coin or bullion item, over and above the spot or metal price of the Precious Metal contained in the coin. The premium includes the costs of fabrication, distribution and a minimal dealer fee. Rare coins carry an additional premium representing numismatic value, which is based on scarcity, quality, demand and intangible factors.

Coin Premium Appreciation

Over time (usually at least 3-5 years after release), the premium of a particular coin may increase due to limited availability or other factors such as demand and quality of the coin.

Introductory Premium

APMEX’s initial premium above the spot or melt price at the time of a coin’s release.

Current Premium

The premium or additional cost of a bullion coin above and beyond the metal value of the Precious Metal it contains.

Buy Back Premium

The premium above spot or metal price that APMEX is currently paying to buy back a given item. These premiums are subject to change based on market conditions, inventory position, and quantity to be bought back.

Grading and Warranties

Our company uses the numerical Mint State (MS) grading system, which rates uncirculated coins from MS-60 to MS-70.

Typically, the higher the grade, the better the quality of the coin and in turn, the higher the value. The grade assigned to a coin reflects its strike, luster, marks, scratches and overall eye appeal. Grading is a subjective art and depends on the opinion of the person grading the coin or currency. Thus, grading can and does vary from numismatic coin firm to numismatic coin firm, from grading service to grading service, and from expert to expert. A difference of one grade (e.g., MS-64 to MS-65) can result in a significant change in the valuation of a numismatic coin or currency. Grades and descriptions of numismatic coins and currency are opinions, not statements of fact or guarantees, and are based on standards and interpretations in place at the time of grading.

When you acquire a coin or currency from APMEX that is independently graded by a third-party grading service such as Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), APMEX relies entirely on the expertise/determination of the grading service. In addition, we rely upon definitions provided by these independent grading services, including definitions of such terms as PCGS' "First Strike®" which refers to coins packaged and delivered by the U.S. Mint in the thirty (30)-day period following the initial sales date of a new product. We do not re-grade or independently evaluate the product's grade in its sealed holder. APMEX reserves the right to deliver independently graded coins that have been graded by an independent grading service of APMEX's choice such as PCGS or NGC. APMEX guarantees that the numismatic coins and Precious Metals it sells are genuine. APMEX expressly disclaims any other warranties with respect to coins or Precious Metals, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. See our User Agreement for a full disclaimer of warranties.

Premium Appreciation

You should know that different market factors may influence the price of a specific Precious Metal or the associated premium. For example, the price of a numismatic coin may be affected by such factors as grade, scarcity and marketplace demand, while the price of a bullion coin is closely tied to the spot price for the metal content of the coin as well as year-specific mintages. Past performance and growth projections for one type of Precious Metal may not apply to other types of Precious Metals that APMEX may offer.

Holding Period

Our experience suggests coins of specific quality or scarcity that have demonstrated historical premium appreciation tend to do so at least 3 to 5 years after the coin was produced. Market conditions and other factors will always impact the future value for coins, and therefore premium appreciation should never be considered to be guaranteed.

Our Prices

Our prices are set internally based upon our analysis of a variety of factors and are not necessarily tied to the prices quoted by any other organization. Prices are subject to change based on market conditions.
  APMEX acts as a dealer and generally owns the Precious Metals it buys and sells.


All investments involve risk and Precious Metals are no exception. The Precious Metals market is speculative, unregulated and volatile, and prices for these items may rise or fall over time.

APMEX generally classifies coins as bullion, semi-numismatic and numismatic. Some coins may fall within more than one category, depending on their specific grade or condition. Other dealers and organizations may define these terms or classify these coins differently.

Precious Metals generally have a premium above their melt value. Premiums may increase or decrease based upon current market conditions such as supply and demand. Changes in premiums may affect a Precious Metal’s pricing beyond changes in spot prices.

Precious Metals can go down as well as up in value. These items may not be suitable for everyone. APMEX does not determine the suitability of any specific person to purchase Precious Metals. You should consult with your independent financial advisor regarding whether such an investment is right for you. You should not acquire any products from APMEX if you are not competent or qualified to make your own financial decisions. You should obtain a thorough understanding of the Precious Metals products before you acquire these products as a collector or investor.

The investment value of Precious Metals depends in large part on the price you pay. If you are acquiring any of APMEX's products as an investment, you should evaluate its current market value, potential for appreciation and liquidity, and consult independent sources regarding these factors. APMEX does not guarantee that any client will be able to sell Precious Metals at the original purchase price or a higher price in the future.

APMEX is not responsible for any changes in tax laws or other statutes which may affect any profit or salability of your coins or currency.

What People Are Saying

Beautiful coin. Really like the design. Listed as BU - but the 2014 edition I received looks like it would grade out higher than that. Really impressed.
DG from California
I have been wanting to buy one of these coins for years but never knew where to get one except Mexico City and I do not like hanging out there much. This is a great coin to purchase and is a even better investment. Its about the size of a Kennedy Half Dollar if I were to guess at it, gold is nice looking coin was in like un-circulated condition.
