Comments

IMPORTANT NOTE: After an investigation, it was not possible to confirm the existence of coins with years 2009 and 2016.
On Krause catalog the coins are not listed, nor 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.


1994, minted at Canada: out of the most noticeable difference: medal rotation vs. coin rotation on the other years, there are design variations:  
On obverse, shield has variations and fonts are slighty different; on reverse, Church and houses drawing have differences.
