The Mexican Mint is an official Mint in Mexico with a long traditional history. It is the first Mint in America that 'Cedula Real established. Mexico City was the capital of New Spain, and most of its territory covered the western hemisphere that also includes the United States of the Mississippi.
The Mint produces Mexican coins and sells them at a current market price of precious metals. It uses the premium to cover handling, minting, and a marketing cost. Mexican precious metals or bullion Coins carry a high premium than other coins as they have a low mintage and light design.
Many coin collectors and investors buy gold and silver coins like Libertads to make most Mexican Bullion Coins.
Mexican Mint is the oldest operating enterprise in the USA as its roots stem back to the 16th century. In 1521, the Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza arrived to establish "New Spain" in America. They mined silver and then shipped them back to Europe to transform it into coins.
They shipped the coins to America again. As time-consuming, Mendoza established the Mint in 1535 in Ciudad de Mexico and started producing gold and silver coins. In 1935, finally, the Mexican bank took power to strike coins.
