Mexican Libertad Gold Coins are available to you in five weights that range from 1 oz gold to these 1/20 oz gold coins. The series started with a 1 oz gold coin and two fractional-ounce gold coins. As of 1991, the series offers those original weights with 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz gold available to investors as well. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2021 Mexican Libertad 1/20 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
Mexican Libertad coins are unique among major bullion coins for a number of reasons, but one of the leading reasons is its legal tender status. Like the South African Krugerrand, the coin is considered legal tender in its nation of issue. Also, like the Krugerrand, the Libertad has no noted face value on any weight or version of the coin. The Banco de Mexico can be contacted on any given day to determine the face value of a Mexican Libertad Gold Coin as its value is based on the moving spot price of gold.
On the obverse side of 2021 Mexican Libertad 1/20 oz Gold Coins is a depiction of the coat of arms of Mexico. The Mexican coat of arms features a golden eagle devouring a rattlesnake on the perch of a prickly pear cactus. The eagle imagery is based on the Codex Mendoza, a 1541 work of visual art that catalogs the history of the Aztec Empire and its rulers. Included on the Aztec codex is a depiction of an eagle in right-profile relief devouring a snake. The only inscription on this face of the coin is Estados Unidos Mexicanos.
The reverse field of the 2021 Mexican Libertad Gold Coin comes with a visual of Winged Victory. The viewpoint of Victory on this side of the coins is a three-quarter profile view of her statue atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column. The two pieces were built more than a decade apart, with the statue built first in 1910 to mark 100 years from the start of Mexicos revolution against Spain and the column built in 1921 to mark 100 years from independence. Inscriptions on this field of the coin read 1/20 Onza, Oro Puro, 2021 Ley .999, and the MO mint mark of the Mexican Mint.
The golden eagle from the Codex Mendoza is critical to the history of the Aztec Empire and its capital city, Tenochtitlan. A god told the Aztec people to watch for the site where an eagle was devouring a rattlesnake. It was here that the Aztecs founded Tenochtitlan, the city that is now Mexico City. The historic center of modern-day Mexico City is where Tenochtitlan was founded.
These 2021 Mexican Libertad 1/20 oz Gold Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are housed in protective plastic flips.
