Are you looking for a coin that combines captivating beauty with investment-grade .999 fine silver? Check out the 2016 Mexico 1/2 oz Silver Libertad! Struck by La Casa de Moneda de México (the Mexican Mint) with one-half troy ounce (0.5 troy oz) of pure silver, each of these coins is legal tender that is guaranteed for its precious metal content by the Government of Mexico.
The obverse design shows the elegant bare-breasted Angel of Independence statue found in Mexico City. A far off pastoral scene of the country's two most culturally significant volcanoes, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl, fills the background. The top half of the rim bears inscriptions for the weight "1/2 ONZA," the composition "PLATA PURA" (pure silver), the year-date "2016," and the purity "LEY .999." The "Mo" mintmark for Mexico City is placed to the angel's right.
The reverse is adorned by the Mexican coat of arms. The image of a golden eagle devouring a snake while perched upon a prickly pear cactus is taken from the earliest of Aztec legends. The scene is framed in a half-wreath. Oak leaves make up the left half, while the right half is laurel. The issuing country "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS" curls above the eagle.
