Comments

I have found at least 7 different fonts although I do not have the 1992 or 2009 bold coins.




1994 160,000,000        KM#111.1 (fine letters; fine reeding, 72 beads)
2009 122,800,000        KM#111.1 (fine letters; coarse reeding, 96 beads)

1994 has 72 beads and 2009 has 96 beads:




The easiest difference to see is in the "9"s.


The difference in letter size exists. Information in World Coins Catalog concerning the different metals used (Brass and Copper-nickel) is wrong: both coin types are Aluminium-bronze.

Different varieties exist concerning spacing between denomination letters and the number of beads on the reverse.
