Product Details

The 2022 Silver Libertad marks the 41st annual release of the Mexican Silver Libertad. Silver Libertads have mintages that vary each year, and some years have mintages that are much lower, adding to the collectibility of the series.

Silver Libertads have a classic design that stands out in any collection. This stunning 5 oz Silver BU coin is a popular choice not only because of its attractive design, but also its mintage at Casa de Moneda de México, the oldest mint in the Americas.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 5 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Obverse: Features a sculptural relief design of the national shield encompassed by the legend “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” (United Mexican States), surrounded by different national coats of arms used throughout Mexico’s history.
  • Reverse: 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.
  • Guaranteed by Banco de México.

Mexican Silver Libertads
The 5 oz Silver Libertad Brilliant Uncirculated coin was first introduced in 1982, and has been produced annually since its introduction. The coins are produced at La Casa de Moneda de México, the oldest mint in North America. Each year of release has varying mintages, typically much lower than other bullion counterparts, which adds to the collectibility of the Libertad series. These Silver coins have been introduced in different sizes and finishes, but the 1oz remains a classic choice for investors. The obverse of the coin features Mexico’s coat of arms, with the design updated in 2000 to also picture the historical coats of arms of Mexico. The reverse of the beautiful coin tells the legend of two star-crossed lovers, princess Iztaccíhuatl and warrior Popocatépetl, turned into volcanoes by the Aztec gods so they could finally be together. The Angel of Victory depicted on the reverse was changed in 1996 to show a three-quarter side profile. Coins produced from 1982-1995 show the old angel design.
