Comments

KM#201a is for coins dated 1982, whereas KM#201b is for all coins dated afterwards.

1982 is a transition year: the earliest coins were struck in 95% copper, and the latest coins were struck in copper plated zinc. One of the most noticable differences between the two is the weights (3.11 grams versus 2.50 grams).

To varieties exist for 1988: ones with regular "G" and ones with flared "G" in the initials "FG". Those with the flared "G" used a die from 1989, which had a slight change of font of the initials on the reverse.

In 1992, all coins were meant to have a wide "AM" of "AMERICA"; however, some were struck using the design meant for 1993 pieces (not using the proof, contrary to what the documentation says), resulting in some having a close "AM" of "AMERICA".



In 1998, 1999, and 2000, there were two different intended designs: those meant for regular circulating coins and those meant for proof coins. The design of the circulating coins was meant to have a wide "AM" of "AMERICA" whereas the design of the proof coins was meant to have a close "AM" of "AMERICA". Even so, some regular circulating coins were struck with the reverse proof design, and some proof coins were struck with the circulating design.
