It represents the Aztec Capital of Tenochtitian, now Mexico City.

Below the Eagle is a wreath made half 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 on the Silver Libertad is Reeded.

The reverse side of the 1/20 ozt. Mexican Silver Libertad features the "Winged Victory" Angel.

The Angel she holds in her right hand a laurel crown, symbolizing Victory and in her left hand she holds a broken chain, symbolizing Freedom.

The "Winged Victory" Angel is shown towering above the volcanic peaks of Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl.

"Libertad" is Spanish for "Freedom."

"1/20 ONZA" (ounce) & "PLATA PURA" (pure silver) is inscribed along the top of the Silver Libertad.

The coin's Year of Issue and "Ley (pure) .999"  are also inscribed along the top of the Libertad.

The Mint Mark for the Mexican Mint is represented by a "M" under an "O"  , it is inscribed to the left of the Winged Angel.

The 1/20 ozt. Mexican Silver Libertad has No Face Value.




Rounds vs. Coins

Mexican Silver and Gold Libertads DO NOT have a face value, for this reason they are often referenced to be Rounds and not Coins.  

The technical difference between a round and a coin is that a Round has No Face Value and a Coin does.

Most Rounds are produced by a private mint, whereas almost all government mints produce coins. 

The Mexican Libertad is one of the few exceptions.

The Story Behind the Mexican Coat of Arms

mexican coat of arms
Pin It

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 an 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.
