About the Mexican Silver Libertad:
The Mexican Silver Libertad became the first silver bullion coin ever produced specifically for investors in 1982. Since its introduction, it has become one of the most widely traded silver bullion coins in the world. The Silver Libertad is produced in 1 ounce as well as both multi-ounce and fractional-ounce sizes. They bear no stated legal tender face value, but rather are accepted as currency and guaranteed by Banco de México based on the market value of the silver content at the time of transaction. The Mexican Libertad is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful coins in production today. The obverse shows the Mexican Coat of Arms with an eagle clutching a snake in its beak, while the reverse features a stunning depiction of Winged Victory holding a wreath crown in her right hand and broken chains in her left. Similar to the American Lady Liberty, Winged Victory is the allegorical symbol of the Mexican people during their revolution against Spanish Colonial rule. The mountains of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl rise gracefully in the background field.
