Comments

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

NOTE: N/D Issue is believed to be minted as 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.

                                       
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
