Why buy this 2019-Mo 1/20 oz Gold Mexican Libertad?
Mexican Gold Libertads were first introduced in 1981 and became an annual release in 1991. Since then, the series has grown in popularity with collectors around the world, especially those in North America. While there are several larger issues, this 1/20 oz piece provides an affordable alternative that is within the reach of all gold collectors. The coin was struck from .999 fine gold at Casa de Moneda de Mexico, the oldest permanent mint in the Americas. That mint is represented by its unique "Mo" mint mark on the reverse.
Magnificent Angel of Independence Design
On the obverse is the current Mexican coat of arms. A golden eagle that is perched upon a cactus consumes a rattlesnake. The imagery has its roots in ancient native religions, though Westerners understand it simply as good's victory over evil. The name of the issuing country, "ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS" (United States of Mexico), arches over the image.
The Angel of Independence, which stands atop a victory column in Mexico City, features at the center of the reverse. Her garment falls away, leaving her bare breasted as she extends her wings outward and her right hand forward. Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, two volcanoes named for lovers of ancient lore, rise in the distance behind her. This is one of the reasons that this series is popular among lovers. Arching over this design are rim inscriptions that offer the coin's weight, purity, and date. They read, "1/20 ONZA ORO PURO 2019 LEY .999."
Impeccable MS70 FR with Exclusive Mexico Label
According to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), this coin appears flawless under 5x magnification. That is why they gave it their highest grade, Mint State 70. They also designated the piece First Releases, thus indicating that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after the coin was released from the mint. The Mexican flag and El Castillo, the most famous structure of Chichen Itza, appear on the label.
