Mexican Independence



Libertad translated in English means 'Freedom'

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

Miguel Hidalgo y CostillaMiguel Hidalgo y Costilla

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-up against their brutal 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 an important victory in  Mexico's history, it's not the county's Independence Day.

The National Coat of Arms of Mexico is the centerpiece design of the obverse side of the 1/10 oz. Silver Libertad.

It symbolizes Tenochtitlan, the Aztec Capital, now Mexico City.

The wreath below the Golden Eagle is half oak leaves the other half are laurel leaves.

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

The Edge on the silver Libertad is Reeded.








Reverse

tenth oz silver libertad

The reverse side of the 1/10 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad features the "Winged Victory" Angel.

The "Winged Victory" Angel is shown towering above the volcanic peaks of Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl; the volcanoes get their names from a legend about two young Aztec lovers.

"1/10 ONZA" (ounce) & "PLATA PURA" (pure silver) are inscribed around the top of the 1/10 oz. Silver Libertad.

The year of issue and "Ley .999" (representing the Libertad's purity) are also inscribed along the top.

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

The 1/10 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad has 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.

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.
