Mexican Silver Coins

Mexico is a leading producers of silver, providing about 20% of the international silver mine production. Its large silver and gold deposits made Mexico a notorious precious metal source for a long period of time. La Casa de Moneda de México, also known as the Mexican Mint, was established in 1535 by a Spanish decree and since then has produced stunning gold and silver coins.

The first minted coins were the Mexican peso and the Spanish dollar called eight-real coin. La Casa de Moneda’s original minting production is now the Mexican National Cultural Museum. In addition to circulating coins, the Mexican Mint also manufactures commemorative coins. One of the most impressive Mexican Silver Coins is indeed the Silver Mexican Libertad.

This Mexican silver coin was first issued in 1982 and features a depiction of a Mexican mythological love story between the warrior named Popocatépetl and the ancient princess Iztaccíhuatl, represented by two volcanoes which have the same names.
