Comments

The Martí Centenary series (1c, 25c, 50c. and 1$ originally was designed sharing same obverse (the one of 25c), but when the trials were ready, was considered boring all being the same generics, so decided to change obverse, showing details of National Symbols. In this coin, the 5-pointed star within a triangle is present in the national flag and arms. See the other coins for the rest of details.
