Comments

The sun on reverse has 19 rays, for the 19 departments of the country. The Cougar is one of local species, on extintion risk.
This design is similar to that used on 10 Centésimos 1930 and 1936, and 1 Peso 1942.



The coin is classified as bi-metallic, but in fact is 2-piece with brass-plated steel center and nickel plated steel ring.

All 3 issues 2011, 2014 and 2015 were minted in Royal Mint

MINTING ERROR:
On 2011 and 2014 issues were detected a minting error (not catalogued - known as "León Ciego" = Blind Lion), where face of cougar has no eyes nor nose, also many sun rays have a depressing near edge of coin. This is not caused by wearing, as was detected on uncirculated coins, taken directly from Banco Central, and is not a low pressure or thin planchet problem, since the details on obverse are complete. Is mostly considered a die defect.
