Memorial Day - Honor & Remember



Updated on 01/09/24

5 oz. Mexican Silver
Libertad



In 1996, the Mexican Mint added two more sizes to the popular silver Libertad series, which are 2 oz. and 5 oz.

The Silver Libertad's design and limited mintage make it one of the most highly sought-after physical bullion silver investments.




Mexican Independence



Libertad means "Freedom."

The Silver 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," which 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.

Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla is "The Father of Mexico."

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.

Design of the
5 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad



Obverse

Silver Mexican Libertad Obverse

The Mexican National Coat of Arms is the focal point of the obverse side of the 5 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad.

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

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

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

Encircling the Mexican Coat of Arms are reproductions of various Mexican Coat of Arms used throughout its history, featuring the Mexican Golden Eagle.

5 oz. Silver Libertads have a Reeded Edge.








Reverse

5oz. Silver Mexican Libertad Reverse

The 5 oz. Mexican Silver Libertad features the "Winged Victory" Angel on its reverse side.

The Angel design displays her towering above the volcanic peaks of Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl.

"5 ONZAS" and "PLATA PURA" (pure silver) are inscribed along the top of the Silver Libertad.

The "Year of Issue" is inscribed around the top of the 5 oz Libertad along with the word "Ley" (pure) and ".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 5 oz Mexican Silver Libertad has No Face Value.





The Mexican Libertad is a Round,
Not a Coin



The Mexican Libertad is technically a Bullion "Round" and Not a Bullion "Coin," the differences are slight but important to know.

Bullion with a "Face Value" is a "Coin" because the term "Coin" is Only used for government-backed legal tender with a Face Value.

Bullion Rounds have no "Face Value" because, in most cases, "Rounds" are manufactured by a private mint or  privately held entity, and No Government backs them. 

There are some exceptions to this rule, for example, 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 are Rounds and Not Coins because they Do Not Have a Face Value.

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.
