2020 Gold Libertads Struck With A Special Reverse Proof Finish
First issued in 1981, Mexico’s Gold Libertad is one of the world’s most popular and recognized coins. Thanks to its superior quality and award-winning design, it enjoys an elevated status on a par with the world’s most coveted and collected gold coins. While the history of this fabulous coin is relatively short, the story behind the mint that produces it dates back nearly 500 years! In fact, the story of the Libertad is a story of the National Mint of Mexico – la Casa de Moneda de Mexico – by far the oldest mint in North America.
The Mexican Mint has struck enormous quantities of gold coins since it was founded in 1535. Now, in honor of the 40th year of the Gold Libertad’s release, the Mint – for just the second time ever – is releasing the one-ounce coin with a special Reverse Proof finish. A Reverse Proof coin differs from a regular Proof in that instead of frosted details rising over mirror-like fields, it is just the opposite with mirrored details rising over beautifully frosted fields.
Struck in a full ounce of highly-pure 99.9% gold, the coin’s design features the familiar image of Winged Victory and the legendary volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccíhuatl on the reverse, and the National Coat of Arms surrounded by the different official seals used throughout the history of Mexico on the obverse. While bearing no denomination, the coin is backed by the Bank of Mexico with the government guaranty of the coin's weight and metal purity stamped right into its surface, making it a true gold bullion coin.
Your One-Ounce Gold Revere Proof Libertad has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 (PF70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, NGC has certified that your Gold Libertad is a First Releases (FR) coin, a designation that means it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. It will also come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with an exclusive Mexico-themed label.
Just 500 of these gorgeous coins were struck and thanks to that scarcity combined with their gold purity and design; Mexico’s Gold Libertads are among the world’s the most desired coins. Now you can secure this coin with a special Reverse Proof finish – but only if you act fast. With such a small mintage, these coins could disappear before you know it!
