Product Description: 2023 1/2 oz Silver Mexican Libertad
Mexican Silver Libertads have a rich history dating back to 1982. The BU Silver Libertad saw significant growth during its second decade. In the 1990s, the Mexican Mint expanded its offerings to include 2 oz and 5 oz silver coins, as well as four smaller fractional-ounce coins. Among these, the 1/2 oz silver libertads emerged as the largest fractional-ounce option. Today, you can acquire the 2023 1/2 oz Mexican Silver Libertad Coins online at FMR Gold.

Since 1991, the Mexican Mint has offered the Mexican Silver Libertads. It was in this year that fractional-ounce Silver Libertads were introduced, with the 1/2 oz coin leading the way, accompanied by 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/20 oz options. The 1/2 oz Silver Libertad, much like its fractional counterparts, achieved its highest mintage in 1992, a record that stands strong as of 2023.
All the 1/2 oz Silver Libertad Coins are available for online purchase, showcasing their brilliant uncirculated condition. Each coin is individually packaged in protective plastic flips. Notably, the highest reported mintage for this weight category was 119,000 coins in 1992. A significant shift is evident when comparing this to the most recent issue before 2023, with only 5,555 units sold in 2022.
The obverse of the 2023 Silver Mexican Libertad boasts the Mexican national coat of arms. This modern seal depicts a golden eagle perched on a prickly pear cactus, fiercely battling a serpent clutched in its beak and talons. Below the eagle, a wreath of oak and laurel adds a decorative touch.
On the reverse side of the 2023 1/2 oz Silver Libertads, you’ll find the inspiring image of Winged Victory. This symbol, representing Mexican independence, is based on the goddess Victoria (or Nike) and is prominently displayed atop the Mexican Independence Victory Column in this design.
