Comments

For figuring finding out your variation of this coin, you will find that there are 2 stars on both sides of the word 'ESPANA' on the obverse. The bottom side has a 19 or an E in it, and the top star has either the number, 51, 52, 53, 54, 56, 62, 63, 64 or 65.

The coin with a "E" instead of "19" on the lower star was issued to commemorate a numismatic exposition.
