Combinations
A: 1981-1985, 1986 A1, 1986 A2, 1987.
B: 1988-1992.

Notes:
1. The position and wideness of the date differs from year to year, though the wreath is the same on coins from the same group.
2. In 1992 there were coins of two emissions: this one and the next, smaller in aluminum (N# 1866).
3. Correspondence with Standard Catalog of Worlds coins
KM#216.1: dies A, 1986 A1, 1986 A2;
KM#216.2: die B.
