Mexican Silver Libertads are one of the most trusted and widely-traded silver bullion coins today. Issued by the Mexican government, this 1992 1 oz Mexican Silver Libertad carries a face value of 1 onza and a fineness of .999 silver. Libertads are minted by the Casa De Moneda De Mexico in Mexico City.
This was the tenth year Libertads were minted, and only the second year they were minted in fractional sizes. However, the Casa De Moneda has been manufacturing coins for nearly five centuries. It is the oldest mint in the Americas, established in 1535.
The obverse of this 1992 1 oz Mexican Silver Libertad features a winged Victoria, the personified Roman goddess of victory. She holds her right arm upright with a wreath in her hand as if to symbolize winning. The denomination and "Plata Pura" are inscribed on either side of her.
The opposite side shows the Mexican Coat of Arms; an eagle with a snake in its beak and talons. The bird is perched on a prickly pear cactus and encircled by the official title of Mexico.
