Mexican Silver Libertads
The 5 oz Silver Libertad coin in a Brilliant Uncirculated finish was first introduced in 1996, and have been produced annually since their introduction. The coins are produced at La Casa de Moneda de México, the oldest Mint in North America. Each year of release has varying mintages, typically much lower than other bullion counterparts, which adds to the collectability of the Libertad series. The 5 oz Silver Libertad is a popular choice for collectors, for those looking for a larger size of the popular 1 oz coin. The obverse of the coin features Mexico’s historical coat of arms. The reverse of the beautiful coin tells the legend of two star-crossed lovers, princess Iztaccíhuatl and warrior Popocatépetl, turned into volcanoes by the Aztec gods, so they can finally be together.
