2017 Mexico 1/2-oz Silver Libertad NGC PF70UCAM First Releases
Mexico's Triumphant 2017 Libertad Silver Proofs Are Here!
High above the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City, standing tall among the trees and buildings that line the street's path, is the majestic Monumento a la Independencia. Tourists and city dwellers alike know it as the Angel of Independence, or simply El Ángel. Walk around the monument's base, and you'll find yourself among the final resting places of Mexico's most famous heroes -- Miguel Hidalgo, José María Morelos, Vicente Guerrero, Ignacio Allende and many others. But look skyward and you'll find this victory column's most famous feature of all.
Cast in bronze and adorned with 24-karat gold, this monument's namesake winged Victoria floats from the pedestal, a laurel crown clutched in her right hand and a broken chain in her left. A landmark symbol of triumph, freedom and peace, Victoria continues to gather people far and wide in proud remembrance. So, it's no wonder that this work of art has graced Mexico's bullion Libertads since the series began in 1982. And now, for 2017, the Silver Libertad Proof makes its annual return in a half ounce of stunning silver!
- A LYRICAL VISION OF TRIUMPH AND HOPE-- Like the ones that came before it, this 2017 Silver Libertad features the winged goddess Victoria hovering over Mexico City with the breathtaking landscape of the country beside her. Victoria is also complimented by both the Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes -- named after the two Aztec lovers of legend. Turn the coin over and you'll discover Mexico's National Coat of Arms.
- EXPERTLY CRAFTED PROOFS-- Each gorgeous Silver Libertad is literal proof of the Casa de Moneda de Mexico's reputation for fine artistry and superior quality -- a tradition set in motion since the mint's founding in 1535. Each coin is minted in a half ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, the product of hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes. The result is a coin that exhibits beautifully frosted details that boldly rise from mirror-like fields.
- MEXICO LEGAL TENDER-- Each Silver Libertad is Mexico legal tender, with a value that is based on the coin's silver spot market value and quoted daily by the Banco de México.
- CERTIFIED FLAWLESS-- Your coin will come certified Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded 2017 Silver Libertad Proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! In addition, your proof will be certified First Releases (FR) by NGC, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was verified within the first 30 days of issue. Finally, your Silver Libertad Proof will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case, giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- TRADITIONALLY LOW MINTAGE -- The Casa de Moneda de Mexico is known for releasing only a limited amount of coins every year. While the Libertad is the crown jewel of the mint's schedule, the mintage of these proofs is still very measured compared to those of other similar series around the world -- making this gorgeous coin all the more desirable!
With a history that traces back centuries, this 2017 Silver Libertad is the latest in a long line of masterpieces from the Casa de Moneda de Mexico. However, with countless collectors clamoring for this captivating coin, we're anticipating demand to be extremely high. Don't miss out -- order yours now!
