Comments

KM# 35.1 was minted ad Kremnica
KM# 35.2 was minted at Havana
N/D KM# 35.2 was minted at Havana

NOTE: N/D Issue is believed to be minted from a dies trial, by mistake, a certain quantity of coins was added to bags sent to circulation, but it is not known the year when it happened, nor the quantity of circulating coins.
Data given on Krause catalog is wrong, cause this series of coins (KM# 35.2) started being minted at Havana minthouse on 2002. Krause gives minting year of N/D coin as 1980; it does not make sense to mint a trial 22 years before of first issue.
Also on last edition of Krause are listed KM# 35.1 issues 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, which is wrong, cause these years only were minted at Havana; KM# 35.1 variant was only minted at Kremnica (new dies were produced to mint at Havana, with differences that caused the variant KM# 35.2); please note the picture shown at Krause is the 1969 issue.


Images show KM# 35.1, minted at Kremnica, KM# 35.2(N/D), minted at Havana, and KM# 35.2, minted at Havana (dated issue). Design differences are easy to notice, specially the height and width of "XX" on center.

Known variations on year issues:
2010: another font type of date numerals, thin and wide date
