2 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad
Bullion Coin

In 1996, the Mexican Mint, introduced a new design to the Mexican Silver Libertad.

In addition to changing the design of their gold and silver coins, the Mint also added two new coins to the bullion coin series, the 2oz. and 5oz. silver bullion coins.

Libertad is the Spanish word for Freedom.
