Obverse: Features a sculptural relief design of the National Shield, encompassed by the legend “Estados Unidos Mexicanos” (United Mexican States), surrounded by different national coats of arms used throughout Mexico’s history.
Reverse: Depicts two key symbols of the Mexican people: the Winged Victory statue in the forefront and the Mexican volcanoes Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl in the background.
The Winged Victory, also known as the Angel of Independence, or the Angel for short plays a large part in Mexico’s history. Originally finished in 1910, the statue of the Angel in Mexico City was built to commemorate Mexico’s independence from Spain. The Angel is a version of the Roman goddess of victory, Victoria. The crown of laurel is for placing on the heads of victorious independence revolutionaries, and the broken three-link chain in the other hand represents three centuries of Spanish rule before Mexicans broke from Spain. The Winged Victory is a vital symbol of Mexico, and only fitting she be featured on the well-known Libertad coin series.
