1 oz 2017 Mexican Libertad Proof Gold Coin
Buy with Confidence
Mexico is a nation that is renowned for its beauty and the fierce pride of the people that reside within it. The pride is reflected in its rich culture and history and has been instilled in all of the nation's products, including its bullion range.
The obverse feature is the monument of independence, Angel de la Independencia which is displayed prominently in the heart of Mexico City. The monument is in homage to the Roman Goddess of victory, or Victoria, with no attention to detail left out. In the background, rest the Volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, the Nation's second and third largest volcanoes, respectively. The two volcanic structures hold a prominent role in Aztec mythology, as Popocatépetl was a fearsome warrior who was promised the Emperor's daughter, Iztaccíhuatl upon the successful completion of an ensuing battle, to increase the warrior's ferocity and resolve. Assuming that he would not return, the Emperor told his daughter that Popocatépetl had died in battle, causing Iztaccíhuatl to perish from grief. Following his triumphant return, the fearless warrior encountered his deceased bride and laid her to rest. Her form remains as Iztaccíhuatl mountain, or La Mujer Dormida, "The Sleeping woman." The legend of the reverse side of the coin reveals its weight, purity, and year of issue, written in Spanish. To this day, Popocatépetl remains an active Volcano, while Iztaccíhuatl does not.
At the center of the reverse, a Golden Eagle is depicted atop of a cactus, as it devours a snake. The encircling images are the various phases of the Mexican coat of arms in a clockwise direction. The reverse also pays tribute to the Aztec heritage of the Nation. It was prophesied that the ancient civilization would settle around the location in which the image was witnessed as reality. Mexico City is the land in which this prophecy is said to have materialized.
The Mexican Libertad has enduring popularity among investors looking to diversify their holdings with a unique and well-designed coin. Libertads are minted in extremely low quantities compared to other bullion coins, which increases both demand and premiums. In addition to their low mintage, their collectability can be appreciated by numismatists as well, ensuring that this is a sound purchase for investment.
