The popularity of certain coins in the gold and silver bullion industry is indisputable. The American Silver Eagle Coin and the British Britannia Coin jump to mind as particularly exciting yearly releases. But the Mexican Silver Libertad Coin is another major annual coin. Minted and distributed by the Mexican Mint, this coin continues to provide value, both in terms of its silver content and collectibility and its unique historical and cultural imagery.
The Mexican Mint itself comes with a pretty tremendous history. It was first founded in the 1500s, making it one of the oldest mints in the world. Although the Mexican Silver Libertad Coin was minted for the first time in 1982, the 2 Oz edition of the coin was only created in 1996. Since then, the 2 Oz version has enjoyed relatively high popularity. It offers a larger amount of silver than its 1 Oz predecessor, and the imagery of the Mexican coat of arms and Winged Victory statue makes for a brilliant and enticing addition to any collection.
- Packaged carefully in protective sleeves.
- .999 pure silver.
- Obverse depiction: The classic statue of Winged Victory.
- Reverse depiction: Various versions of the coat of arms of Mexico.
This coin is the 25th consecutive release of the 2 Oz Silver Libertad. Collectors are likely to appreciate the value this adds to the coin as years pass. The 2020 2 Oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coin can be the continuation of an existing collection, or even the start of a new one. The coins always arrived carefully packaged and in brilliant uncirculated condition.
Both the reverse and the obverse side of the Mexican Silver Libertad Coin provide an exciting look into the rich cultural history of Mexico. On the obverse side, a modernized depiction of the classic Winged Victory statue is featured. The statue was initially created to commemorate the independence victory of Mexican forces over Spanish occupation in their country. Much like the imagery of Lady Liberty for the United States, Mexico’s Winged Victory statue symbolizes equal parts independence and victory.
The reverse side of the 2020 2 Oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coin also highlights an important part of the history of the Mexican government and its constituents. Eleven coats of arms of the Mexican government are featured, with the primary seal centered and encircled by the other ten. The name of the country, Estados Unidos Mexicanos, is inscribed right above the centered seal.
It is hard to deny the historical implications of the 2 Oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coin. The mint at which the coin was struck is one of the longest-running mints in the world. And both the front and back of the coin can help collectors appreciate the unique history, culture, and politics of the country.
Even people disinterested in history can also appreciate the coin’s value as a collectible store of value. With two ounces of .999 pure silver, it weighs a bit more than the 1 Oz alternative, while still delivering exceptional collectibility as the 25th consecutive release of its type.
