Libertad coin of Mexico, minted with 5 ounces of silver in 2020 by the Mexico City Mint.
Mexican independence from Spain has been one of the most celebrated historical events in the history of the Central American country. It has appeared in sculptures, paintings, poetry... and also on the country's legal tender coins! This is the case of the Libertad de México coin, which is a recreation of the century-old 50-peso gold coin and depicts the statue commemorating the achievement of sovereignty in Mexico. The coins are named after the fact that they were minted just a century after the country achieved its long-awaited independence.
This can be seen especially in the cross, in which we find the Angel of Independence on a pedestal: in his right hand, raised to shoulder height, he holds a laurel wreath representing victory, while in his left, with a clenched fist, he holds broken chains. Behind her, we see the volcanoes Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl. The upper background is flat while the lower one has a perfectly recreated scenery with terrain at different heights and rich in vegetation.
On the cross of the coin we see the bas-relief design of a Mexican eagle, shown attacking a snake, another metaphor for the country's independence. Around it, the same scene is depicted in different styles, a variant of the country's important event.
