Add the 2016 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad from the National Mint of Mexico to your silver bullion collection today. Silver Libertads consist of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver, and like the American Silver Eagles, Chinese Silver Pandas, and Canadian Silver Maples carry a legal tender value, are highly sought after among coin collectors and investor, and are credible investments because they have the backing of a sovereign government.
The National Mint of Mexico was established in 1535 in Spain, and is the oldest mint in North and South America. This mint is an IRA approved facility (ISO9001), meaning that the Silver Libertads are produced under the highest minting standards and may be included in most precious metals IRAs.
Mexican SIlver Libertads were issued first in 1982. The original design came from the Centenario gold coin, which commemorates Mexico’s liberation from Spain and was produced from 1921 through 1947. The initial Libertad featured Winged Victoria (or Victory), the Mexican Angel of Independence, holding a wreath of laurel and a broken chain.
Like the Centenario gold coin, the reverse of the 2016 Mexican Silver Libertad features the Victory Angel. The Victory Angel stands between two volcanoes, named Popocatepeti and Iztaccihuati for two lovers from pre-Columbian lore. “5 ONZA,” “PLATA PURA,” “2016” and “LEY .999” are inscribed on the reverse.
The obverse of the Silver Libertad features Mexico’s national seal. The seal includes an eagle standing atop a cactus carrying a beak in its mouth. Similar symbols surround the design and represent Mexico’s 10 provinces. “ESTDOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS” is inscribed around the central image.
The 2016 Silver Libertads are a beautiful addition to Provident Metals’ selection of foreign silver bullion. Like Chinese Silver Pandas and American Silver Eagles, the Silver Libertads are available in a variety of sizes. 2016 Mexican Silver Libertads ship in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, exactly as they are received from the mint. Individual coins ship in plastic flips, and quantities of 10 in mint tubes.
