ANA Money Show Toned Libertad

Coins-World | Longstrider

   Here is one of the coins I acquired at the Anaheim Show. It is a 1987 Libertad. Slabbed and rated MS 65 by NGC. As you can see, I hope, it is very colorfully toned. That is a big weakness of mine. The Libertad is a bullion coin, much like our silver American Eagle and Canada's silver Maple Leaf. I started collecting them just because I like them. I usually just buy the BU coins. I saw this one and didn't even stop to ask how much. I just figured it would be out of my budget. My wife however wasn't so sure and inquired as to the price. Well I was very mistaken and snatched it up. This coin was bought on the last hour of our stay there. Never give up on that special coin. Thanks for looking!

I really fell in love with the "smooth edged" Libertad when I first started to acquire bullion coins. Beautiful design, front & back. These are great coins! I'm sure it will be difficult to let them go when the time comes. In the mean time, I continue to enjoy them with my daughter.. Cheers to the libertad

I do love the coin but Everytime it come out by the time I realize it I'm to late. The mintage is very low I wanted to add that. It's from the oldest mint in the west low mintage they should be valued higher! What do you think?

I don't collect many international coins, but I like the angel, the eagle attacking the snake and the silver content. Enjoy your coin!

Wow, I don't usually pay much attention to colorfully toned coins but this is a beauty. Congratulations on a nice pick up.

The obverse toning on that coin is spectacular! Very nice pick-up. There is nothing like a big show to find the best selection of coins. Now that you're hooked on big shows, you'll probably want to go to more. I know that's what happened to me and after attending the summer show three years in a row, I really missed going to the show this year. Oh well, can't go every year, maybe I'll try for Denver next year. There's also a winter FUN show on my bucket list sometime!
