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


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.


2002 variants: High date on left, low date on right, distance from date to edge is different.

On 2016 legend was changed from "PATRIA Y LIBERTAD" to "PATRIA O MUERTE",  this legend have been changed on 1 and 2 centavos coins on 1983, and on 20 and 40 centavos on 1982, but remained unchanged on 5 centavos value. 2016 coins are not still listed on Krause, this is the reason they show "NO KM#" in years comments, you can see new version on its own page (see link below).
1 cent coins had the same variation and kept same KM#, as variant; therefore, is possible when Krause list this coin be catalogued (relisted) as KM# 34.1 up to 2015, and added as KM# 34.2 from 2016 and on.
