1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins are the benchmark in the Proof Silver Libertad Series. The coins were first issued in 1983 with just 998 silver coins issued that year. After a two-year hiatus, the program resumed in 1986 with a mintage that stands as a record for the 1 oz proof: 30,006. Over the next several years, the 1 oz coin had a mintage cap that was initially 12,000 in 1987 and then 10,000 annually from 1988 to 1992.
Since 1992, the mintage of 1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad coins has fluctuated from one year to the nest. The mintage didn’t reach the 10,000-coin mark again until 2008 when 11,000 were sold. That was followed by three straight years of 10,000-coin caps. More recently, the 2019 coin sold 5,500 specimens.
Winged Victory appears on the obverse of all 2021 Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins. Her figure is depicted in a front-facing relief with a wreath crown in one hand and a broken chain in the other. In the distant background field, you can see the twin volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.
The Mexican Coat of Arms is featured not once, but 11 times on the reverse of 2021 1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins. The modern symbol of the government is featured in the center of the design field and surrounded on the outer edge by 10 historic versions of that same seal.
These 2021 1 oz Proof Mexican Silver Libertad Coins are available individually inside of plastic capsules. The coins are traditional proof specimens with frosted designs and mirrored background fields.
