Mexican Gold Libertads
While Gold Libertads were first struck in 1 oz Gold in a Brilliant Uncirculated finish in the year 1981, and a 1 oz Proof coin introduced in 1983, the coin was not struck in this 1/20 oz size until 1991 for the BU, and not until 2004 for the first 1/20 oz Proof Gold Libertad. The design on the coins is based on the historical Centenario coin that celebrated the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain. Fractional Gold Libertad coins offer collectors a lower price point to collect these beautiful coins than its 1 ounce counterpart. Gold Libertads are known to have low mintages for bullion coins, making backdated coins difficult to come across, and adding to the collectibility of the series.
The Libertads are produced at La Casa de Moneda de Mexico (Mexican Mint), the oldest Mint in North America. It is also the national mint of Mexico, first established in 1535. The Bank of Mexico is Mexico’s central bank, and is the Mexican Mint’s largest client, producing both circulating coinage and currency for the country, as well as Precious Metal coins. The mint is located in Mexico City.
