Mexican Gold Libertad Half oz.

Fractional Gold Libertads

1981 to Present



Libertad means "Freedom" in Spanish.

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 day 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: Outside of Mexico, 'Cinco de Mayo' is frequently misinterpreted as Mexico's Independence Day, which it isn't, 'Cinco de Mayo' celebrates the Mexican victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.




The History of the
Gold Libertad



In 1981, Banco de Mexico introduced the Mexican Gold Libertad, and the Mexican Mint began production of the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz Gold Libertads.

There is little information about Gold Libertad's first ten years of production; mintage figures are only available for its first year of minting.

Gold Libertads are made of .999 fine gold and minted in the following sizes: 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and one troy ounce.

In 1991, the Mexican Mint added the 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz Gold Libertads to the bullion series.

From 1981 through 1994, the Gold Libertad Onza portrayed the same design as the Centenario 'Winged Victory' Angel taken from Mexico's 50-peso gold bullion coin (pictured right).

There were no Libertads minted from 1995 to 1999.

The Mexican Mint resumed the production of the 1oz. Gold Libertad in 2000, stopped in 2001 and 2002, then in 2003, they resumed minting the Libertad, and have without interruption.




The Libertad's New Design

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

The Libertad's reverse side's new design portrayed 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.

The wreath below the eagle is half oak leaves and half laurel leaves.
The laurel leaves represent victory, and the oak leaves commemorate those who have given their lives for Mexico.

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, (tuh·nowch·teet·laan) which became the center of the Aztec Empire.

Today, Tenochtitlan is Mexico City.
