Comments

NOTE: Kremnica and Leningrad Mint can be distinguished by some details:
On coins from Kremnica Mint, the left point of the star points between A and T of PATRIA
On coins from Leningrad Mint, the left point of the star points on the right leg of the A

1963-1972 minted at Kremnica,
1968 minted at Kreminca and Leningrad,
2001-date minted at Havana
Al 971.5‰; Mg 25‰; Mn 3,5‰.

Some minor variations in lettering and design between 1971/1972 and 2001-date coin:


1972 coins started circulating on the 90's; that is the reason why no coins were minted between 1972-2001.
