Mexican Gold Libertad Half oz. &
Fractional Gold Libertads





Miguel Hidalgo y CostillaMiguel Hidalgo y Costilla

Libertad translated into English means 'Freedom.'

The Libertad is a symbol of Mexico's Independence; Mexico won its independence from Spain on August 24th, 1821.

However, this is not the date of its celebrated 'Independence Day,' that date is September 16th.

On September 16th, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest, started the Mexican War of Independence when he gave his famous speech "Grito de Dolores" or “Cry of Delores,” named after the town in Guanajuato where it took place.

He rang the bell of his church to get the town's attention, and he called on the people to rise against their Spanish-European occupiers.

Note:

In the United States, 'Cinco de Mayo' is often misinterpreted as Mexico's Independence Day.  Although 'Cinco de Mayo' or the '5th of May' does celebrate a significant victory in  Mexico's history, it's not the county's Independence Day.

The History of the
Gold Libertad




The Mexican Gold Libertad was introduced in 1981.

At that time, the Mexican Mint only produced the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz. Gold Libertads.

winged victory angel

The Mexican Mint introduced the Gold Libertad in 1981.

Little is known about the first ten years of Gold Libertads production, in fact, mintage figures are only available for its first year of minting.

From 1982 thru 1990, mintage figures for the Gold Libertad are very hard to find, and additional information about the Libertad is limited.

Gold Libertad's are made of .999 fine gold and are minted in the following sizes; 1/20, 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, and one troy ounce.

From 1981 to 1994, the Mexican Gold Libertad Onza portrayed the same design as the Centenario “Winged Victory" Angel taken from Mexico's 50-peso gold bullion coin.

There were no Gold Libertads minted from 1995 to 1999.





The Libertad's New Design




In the year 2000, due to the high demand of gold coins, the Mexican Mint started to mint the Gold Libertad again, but this time with a new design.

The reverse side's new design displayed a different "Winged Victory" Angel from the ONZA, this gave the Gold Libertad the same reverse design of the Silver Libertads.

In the right hand of the "Winged Victory" Angel, she holds a laurel crown, symbolizing Victory and in her left hand, she holds a broken chain, symbolizing Freedom.

Since 2000, the Mexican Mint has produced the Fractional Sized - Gold Libertads every year except for 2001 and 2012.

Design of Fractional
Mexican Gold Libertads


All of the coins on this guide are narrated in the first person point of view; click this link and it will take you to the 'coin anatomy page' which will give you an in-depth explanation.  Or, the easiest way to interpret a first person point of view is to hold a coin up to your chest and look in a mirror.




Obverse

half oz gold libertad

The Obverse side of each fractional sized Mexican Gold Libertads features a slightly different design from that of the 1oz. Gold Libertad.

The Design displays the National Coat of Arms of Mexico.

The Coat of Arms depicts a Mexican Golden Eagle perched upon a prickly pear cactus, with a snake in its beak.

There is a wreath below the eagle, half made of oak leaves the other half made of laurel leaves.

Above the Eagle are the words "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS," Mexico's official name in the Spanish language.

The Edge is Reeded on each 1/2 oz and the other fractional Mexican Gold Libertads.








Reverse

half oz gold libertad

The reverse side of the 1/2 oz. Mexican Gold Libertad features the "Winged Victory" Angel design. (other fractional Mexican Gold Libertads have the same design as the 1/2 oz Gold Libertads)

The angel is depicted atop the Victory Column, in front of the volcanic mountains of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.

Inscribed along the top of the Half oz. Mexican Gold Libertad is "1/2 ONZA" (1/2 ounce), "ORO PURO" (pure gold).

The Year of Issue is also displayed along the top of the Libertad, along with "Ley" (pure) ."999"

The Mint Mark of the Mexican Mint is inscribed to the left of the Winged Angel with the symbol of the "M" under an "O."

Note: The Fractional-Sized Mexican Gold Libertads have no Face Value.







Coins & Rounds
Defined




The Mexican Libertad is considered to be a 'Round,' not a 'Coin,' the difference is slight but important to know.

A private mint or privately held entity manufacture bullion rounds.

Whereas the term for a 'coin' refers to a legal tender coin with a 'Face Value.'

Bullion Rounds are not legal tender, and no government backs them.

There are some exceptions to this rule, one example being the Mexican Libertad.

The Mexican Mint produces gold and silver Libertads, under the authority of the Central Bank of Mexico (Banco de Mexico) and the Mexican Government.

However, silver and gold Libertads DO NOT have a face value, for this reason, they are often referenced to be Rounds and not Coins.

The Story Behind the Mexican Coat of Arms

mexican coat of arms

In the early 1300s, an Aztec tribe also known as the Mexica tribe, who had no homeland, wandered around the northern areas of the country, known as Mesoamerica, in search of a place to build their Empire.

As the legend goes, in 1323, the tribe's leader received a vision in a dream that they were to settle at the place where they saw an eagle with a snake in its beak, while perched at the top of a prickly pear cactus.

Two years later, the dream was fulfilled on a swampy island, in Lake Texcoco.

Scouts for the tribe found the eagle, snake, and cactus in the same fashion that the leader described to them, in his vision.

This is where the tribe settled and built the city of Tenochtitlan, which became the center of the Aztec Empire.

Today, Tenochtitlan is known as Mexico City.
