Kilo Mexican Silver Libertads - Popular among collectors and investors for its lovely design, the Mexican Silver Libertad has begun to play a major role on the coin market. The kilo Mexican Libertad is .999-fine Silver and is one of the most beautiful Silver coins in the world. The reverse depicts two key symbols reflective of Mexico's rich heritage: the Angel of Independence and the Mexican volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl. Pictured in the forefront of the coin's reverse, the Winged Victory angel is a historic monument for the Mexican people and is a symbol of Mexico City. The volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl memorialize the Mexican legend of two lovers for whom they were named. 


The obverse features the National Seal of Mexico with the official name for Mexico in Spanish: “Estados Unidos Mexicanos.” Outlining the contour of the frame is the reproduction of various coats of arms used throughout Mexico’s history.

Mexican  Independence

Libertad translated in English means 'Freedom'

The Libertad is a symbol of Mexico's Independence, Mexico won its independence from Spain on August 24th, 1821.However, this is not the date of its celebrated 'Independence Day,' that date is September 16th. On September 16th, 1810, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest, started the Mexican War of Independence when he gave his famous speech "Grito de Dolores" or “Cry of Delores,” named after the town in Guanajuato where it took place.

He rang the bell of his church to get the town's attention, and he called on the people to rise against their Spanish-European occupiers.

In the United States, 'Cinco de Mayo' is often misinterpreted as Mexico's Independence Day.  Although, 'Cinco de Mayo' or the '5th of May' does celebrate an important victory in  Mexico's history, it's not the county's Independence Day. The Mexican National Coat of Arms is the center focal point of the obverse side of the 1 kilo. Mexican Silver Libertad.

It shows a Mexican Golden Eagle perched upon a cactus with a snake in its beak.Below the Eagle is a wreath, half made of oak leaves the other half made of laurel leaves.On the upper half of the Coat of Arms are the words “ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS,” Mexico's Official Name in Spanish. Encircling the Mexican Coat of Arms are reproductions of other versions of the Mexican Coat of Arms, used throughout history.The Edge on the 1 kilo Silver Libertad is Reeded.

The reverse side of the 1 kilo. Mexican Silver Libertad features the "Winged Victory" Angel.The Angel design depicts her soaring above the volcanic peaks of Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl."1 kg", "PLATA PURA" (pure silver) is inscribed around the top of the 1 kilo. silver Libertad.Also, along the top of the Silver Libertad, is the 'year of issue' and the inscriptions "Ley" (pure) ".999," representing the silver Libertad's purity.Below the 'year of issue' is the symbol of an "M" under an "O" the symbol is the Mint Mark of the Mexican Mint.The 1 kilo. Mexican Silver Libertad has no Face Value.

Coins & Rounds - Defined

The Mexican Libertad is considered to be a 'Round,' not a 'Coin,' the difference is slight but important to know.A private mint or privately held entity manufacture bullion rounds.Whereas the term for a 'coin' refers to a legal tender coin with a 'Face Value.'Bullion Rounds are not legal tender, and no government backs them.There are some exceptions to this rule, one example being the Mexican Libertad.The Mexican Mint produces Gold and Silver Libertads, under the authority of the Central Bank of Mexico (Banco de Mexico) and the Mexican Government.However, silver and gold Libertads DO NOT have a face value, for this reason, they are often referenced to be Rounds and not Coins.
