  • Mexican Libertad Gold Coins at Provident Metals

    Among the most popular annual bullion releases is the Mexican Libertad Gold Coin from the Mexican Mint. The official gold bullion coin of Mexico continues to fascinate collectors and investors with its design, purity, and unique special editions available. Learn more about this well-known coin program, right here at Provident Metals.

    Background on Mexican Libertad Gold Coins

    The Mexican Mint created the Centenario coin in 1921 to honor the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain. This gold bullion coin had a face value of 50 pesos and was minted annually up until 1931. These coins also featured a unique design of Winged Victory on the obverse. This design would serve as the basis for the mint’s next bullion coin, the Libertad.

    While the Mexican Libertad Silver Coin debuted in 1982 and has been released every year since the gold coin program has a much different story. The Mexican Mint released a 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz gold coin back in 1981 with each coin having a mintage north of 100,000.

    The Mexican Mint returned in 1991 releasing a 1 oz coin and four fractional ounce weights. The fractional-ounce coins were given strict limits while the 1 oz coin was struck to meet demand. Production of these five coins continued until 1994. A halt in production forced a stoppage from 1995 to 1999. The coin program made a one-year comeback in 2000, then again in 2002 with them being released annually ever since.

    These coins are a little more unique than other annual bullion releases as they technically don’t have a face value. However, they are still accepted as currency as they’re backed by Banco de México based on the market value of the gold content in the coin.

    Design

    The design of both fields for the most part has remained largely the same since the inception of the coin program in 1981. However, some changes have been made over time with 1 oz coins also differing then their smaller counterparts.

    • Obverse 1981-1994: From 1981 to 1994 The Mexican Libertad Gold Coin, regardless of which size you had, featured the coat of arms of Mexico. This displays a Mexican golden eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus, with a rattlesnake in its talons and mouth.
    • Obverse 2000-Present: While the aforementioned obverse has remained the same even to this day, in 2000, a change was made to the 1 oz coin. The coat of arms is still shown; however, it’s surrounded by the previous 10 coats of arms as well. The lone inscription on the obverse reads “Estados Unidos Mexicanos.”
    • Reverse 1981-1994: From 1981 to 1994 the reverse of these coins displayed the image of Winged Victory, first used on the 1921 Centenario Gold coin. This front-facing depiction showcases her holding a wreath in her right hand and broken chains in her left. In the background, we can see the Mexican volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl.
    • Reverse 2000-Present: The newer Libertad design now features a three-quarter side profile of Winged Victory. The volcanoes in the background are still present, but now are more detailed as well.

    Sizes Available

    The series debuted with a 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz coin in 1981. For the second year of release in 1991, a 1/10 oz and a 1/20 oz coin were added to the program. These sizes have been available every year since, with the exception of 2012 when just a 1 oz coin was available. Every size available has a purity of at least .999 pure gold. Notably, these coins have no face value but are backed due to their gold content.

    Proof and Reverse Proof Coins

    The Mexican Mint released a proof 1 oz coin in 1983. This release had a mintage of just 88. In 1989, a 1/2 oz proof coin with a mintage of 704 debuted. In 2004, the Mexican Mint released a proof coin for the Libertad in all five sizes. These have been released annually ever since. Proof coins serve as more of a collector’s item as they have frosted design elements with a mirrored background.

    The Mexican Mint released a 1 oz and a 1/2 oz reverse proof coin in 2018. These coins have a frosted background with a mirrored effect on the design elements, such as on Winged Victory. These coins have been released annually ever since in just the two available sizes.
