Comments

On July 1, 2017 the metal composition of the 5 cents changed into a steel core with a copper overlay, which makes this coin magnetic.
Because of the metal composition change this coin will have a new KM number. Although it's likely to be KM# 30a only Krause can assign a KM# number so we have to wait till Krause officially assigns this number to the coin and unfortunately this could take a few more years.

Since this change took place in the middle of the year it's likely the 2017 coin exists in old and new metal composition, so be aware to tick the right entry when adding a 2017 coin, especially since there are several other entries in between.
