Mexican Silver Libertad coins feature historic imagery that is relevant the nations ancient past and symbolic of its struggle for freedom from Spanish rule in the 19th century. The twin volcanic peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl are visible in the background of the obverse, and bear the names of ancient Aztec lovers. Legend says Iztaccihuatl died of grief believing that Popocatepetl had died in battle, when in reality he was still alive.
On the obverse face of each coin youll find these volcanic peaks in the background, with the foreground dominated by the image of Winged Victory. Her angelic statue is symbolic of the nations success in its war of independence with Spain, which started in 1821. Today a statue stands in her honor in the center of Mexico City, where it was erected in 1921 on the centennial of the wars opening.
The reverse side of the 2016 oz Mexican Silver Libertad is the image of the coat of arms for Mexico. While the full-weight coins in the series feature historic versions surrounding this design, the fractional-weight coins are too small to include the 10 historic designs of the coat of arms.
