2 ozt. Mexican Silver
Libertad





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

In addition to the design change of their gold and silver Libertads, the Mint also added two new silver Libertads to the bullion coin series, the 2 ozt. and 5 ozt..

Libertad is the Spanish word for Freedom.

The center of the obverse side of the 2 ozt. Mexican Silver Libertad features, the National Coat of Arms of Mexico.

The coat of arms depicts a Mexican Golden Eagle perched upon a cactus, with a snake in its beak.

Below the Golden Eagle is a wreath, half of oak leaves the other half of laurel leaves.

Surrounding the Coat of Arms are the words “ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS,” Mexico's Official Name in Spanish.

Encircling the Outside of the Mexican Coat of Arms are reproductions of various Mexican Coat of Arms used throughout history.

The edge is Reeded on the two oz. Silver Libertad.

The reverse side of the 2 ozt. Mexican Silver Libertad features the "Winged Victory" Angel design.

The "Winged Victory" Angel is shown towering above the volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl.

The volcanoes are memorialized in the legend of two Aztec lovers from whom they were named after.

Inscribed along the top of the 2 ozt. Mexican Silver Libertad is "2 ONZAS" (2 ounces), "PLATA PURA" (pure silver).

The year of issue is also inscribed along the top of the Libertad, along with the word "Ley" (pure) ".999" representing its silver purity.

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."

The 2 ozt. Mexican Silver Libertad has no Face Value.







Rounds vs. Coins

A private mint or privately held entity manufacture bullion rounds.

Bullion Rounds are not legal tender and they are not backed by any government.

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

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 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.
