Comments

New material in comparison to the old 5 Bolivianos.
A newspaper article about the new coin in Spanish: http://www.lostiempos.com/actualidad/economia/20170328/banco-central-renueva-moneda-5-bolivianos

In short it explains the main difference is a more brilliant material on center, being the design the same as previous issue (KM 219), also stats that all previous issues are still valid (KM  219, from 2010 and 2012; and KM# 212 from 2001 and 2004)
