Gold Libertads were first struck in 1 oz Gold in a Brilliant Uncirculated finish in the year 1981. The design on the coins minted in 1981 and 1991-1994 is based on the historical Centenario coin that celebrated the 100th anniversary of Mexico's independence from Spain. The 2000 Gold Libertad was the year when the design was updated to also feature the historical coat of arms surrounding the coat of arms of Mexico. Gold Libertads are known to have low mintages for bullion coins, making backdated coins difficult to come across, and adding to the collectibility of the series.
Understand what Brilliant Uncirculated means when buying Mexican Gold coins.
When collecting Mexican Gold coins, or any Gold coins, the condition of the coin is very important if you want to possess a coin not only for its Gold content, but also its numismatic, or collector, value. The Mexican Gold Onza, or any Gold coin, that is designated a Brilliant Uncirculated coin is a coin that has never been in circulation and has retained its original mint luster. Brilliant Uncirculated Gold Libertads and other BU coins are also described as MS (mint state) and can be graded from MS-60 to MS-70 by an official coin grading service such as PCGS or NGC, two of the top services.

My rating for this listing is specifically on the 1 oz gold Onza . . . . Great value (compare to other one ounce gold piece options). Beautiful, and at .900 the extra weight (total 34+ gm) makes the heft impressive. The photo/description does not mention the interesting edge markings: "Libaertad", "Independencia". Additionally, the Onza is readily recognized, but yet not commonly found, making it a nice part of a collection.
