Where to buy Mexican silver coins?

Will be visiting Lakeside soon, and would like to pick up some 1 oz silver Libertad coins as gifts for neighbors' kids. (Illustrated: https://www.jmbullion.com/mexican-silver-libertad/) Sometime in the distant past, think I read that one or more of the big banks (supposedly) had them to sell.  If so, which one(s)?  Also,  few years ago I was rambling around what I think was the eastern end of centro Guadalajara and passed by what seemed to be maybe a block of small coin/precious metal exchanges with their characteristic safety glass windows.  Anyone know the name of the street, and/or have any warnings to offer?  Thanks.

Thanks again - seems the Mexican mint only produces a certain quantity annually, resulting in what would appear to be a 25% premium over, say, troy oz silver Maple Leafs. In the States, only AMPEX seems to currently have the 1 oz Libertad  in stock, for under $23 BU, and for small lots there is an additional tax levied by California.  But 'a bird in the hand', wot...

(In case anybody hasn't seen one, the 50-peso 1.2 toz pure gold content coin is a beautiful beast, larded with alloy...)
