The 1996 Mexico 1 oz Silver Libertad BU is a remarkable piece of bullion that stands out for its low mintage and stunning design. This coin, guaranteed by Banco de Mexico, is a testament to the rich history and culture of Mexico. Its appeal lies not only in its intrinsic value as a silver coin but also in its artistic representation of key symbols of the Mexican people. The coin’s low mintage of 300,000, significantly less than the 1996 American Silver Eagle, adds to its allure for collectors and investors alike.

 

Key features of the 1996 Mexico 1 oz Silver Libertad BU include:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver, ensuring its value and desirability among precious metal enthusiasts.
  • Features a sculptural relief design of the National Shield on the obverse side, a symbol of Mexican pride and identity.

  • Has a significantly lower mintage than the 1996 American Silver Eagle, making it a rare find for collectors.

 

The Silver Mexican Libertad is steeped in history and symbolism. The Winged Victory statue, a key feature of the coin, is a symbol of independence and a historic monument in Mexico City. The two volcanoes depicted, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, are named after a pair of lovers from ancient Aztec legend, further deepening the coin’s connection to Mexican culture and history. The coin’s low mintage adds a layer of exclusivity, making it a unique piece to own.

 

The obverse side of the coin features a sculptural relief design of the National Shield, encompassed by the legend “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” (United Mexican States). This design is a proud display of Mexican identity and heritage, making it a significant piece for those connected to Mexico or its culture.

 

On the reverse side, the coin depicts two key symbols of the Mexican people: the Winged Victory statue in the forefront and the Mexican volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl in the background. This intricate design not only adds to the coin’s aesthetic appeal but also its cultural significance.

 

The 1996 Mexico 1 oz Silver Libertad BU weaves together the allure of precious metal investment and the charm of Mexican heritage, all encapsulated in a coin of rare mintage. Its intricate design narrates a tale of history and culture, while its .999 fine silver composition underscores its tangible value.
