Comments

IMPORTANT NOTE: After an investigation, it was not possible to confirm the existence of coins with year 2003.
On Krause catalog the coin is listed, but not on other 3 Cuban catalogs checked.
Therefore, if you think you have one of these, please check carefully and correct your listing if is mistakenly registered, or please send picture of the coin to referee, if you really have it.


The Castillo de la Real Fuerza (Castle of the Royal Force/Army), is a 16th century fortress located in Havana; was built during colonial time to control and protect the entrance to Havana Bay.


Known variations on year issues:
1994, minted at Canada: out of the most noticeable difference medal rotation vs. coin rotation on the other years, there are design variations:  Castle blocks are different, roof  is different. Shield details are different.


  
2009: Thick date
2013: Thick and narrow date
2016: Large date
2017: Large date, close to rim

The coin was struck at  Ottawa, Canada on 1994 issue, and at Havana rest of years,  up to date.
