Mexican LIBERTAD 1 OZ SILVER Coin About BU VALUE ~NoRes

Exquisite Mexican Libertad
1 OZ SILVER COIN
Near MINT,
Starting near its BULLION VALUE.
Brilliant Uncirculated.
- No Reserve -

This coin is the 1983 edition of the Serie Libertad Plata (silver Liberty series). It's documented on Wiki (Thanks Wiki). You can find information on the current edition at the Banco de México who issued the coin.

From the back -- according to Wiki, we have
the "Coat of Arms of Mexico."
This features the enduring icon of Mexico.
It appears to be an eagle vanquishing a snake.
The front (what I would consider the front)
shows a winged Victoria with volcanoes
in the background.
"Plata Pura" sounds like "Pure Silver."
It's almost pure -- "Ley .999" means that
.001 of the 1 ozt (onza) is something else.
The stats are as follows:
1 ozt (troy ounce),
.999 Silver,
about 36 mm in diameter.
I'm starting this auction at near
the bullion price -- $45.00.

It states there that in 1983 the "1 ozt" Silver bullion coins (with "Millesimal fineness" .999) were produced in "Brilliant Uncirculated" condition, and that just over a million were struck that year (1983). So they may not be particularly rare. Hundreds
