The Silver Libertad is a coin like no other in the Americas. Unlike its counterparts that are only minted in 1 oz sizes, the Mexican Silver Libertad comes in a range of sizes including 1/20 oz, 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 5 oz and 1 kilo of .999 fine Silver. This wide array of sizes allows the Silver Libertad to one of the most versatile Silver coins in the market. Though the Silver Libertad is minted in many different sizes, it has lower populations than that of the American Silver Eagle or Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. These low mintages add to the collectibility of the Mexican Silver Libertad.
La Casa de Mondeda de Mexico, commonly known as the Mexican Mint, has been minting the Silver Libertad since the first year of issue in 1982. The Mexican Mint was originally established in 1535 by the Spanish viceroy Antonio de Mendoza under the authority of the Spanish Crown to create the first mint in the Americas. The Mexican mint has been minting coins such as the Silver 8 reales and Silver peso that have circulated across the globe from the Americas and even into Asia. These Silver coins became the foundation of the modern Mexican Silver Libertad.
The Mexican Silver Libertad honors the legend of two Mexican volcanoes in the background of the reverse. According to a pre-Columbian legend, a warrior named Popocatépetl fell in love with Iztaccíhuatl, a king?s daughter, and earned a tentative marriage blessing from the king on the condition that he win a battle against a rival tribe. While the battle delayed the warrior, a rival suitor started a rumor that Popocatépetl had been killed in the battle, and the fair maiden died of a broken heart. Upon finally returning as the victor from the battle, Popocatépetl discovered the fate of his lover and buried her on top of a mountain range that assumed the shape of a sleeping woman in honor of the dead maiden. Grief-stricken, Popocatépetl climbed an adjacent mountain in order to keep eternal watch over his beloved. Today, the depiction of the volcanoes on the Silver Libertad coin still tells the lovers? story.
