Comments

IMPORTANT NOTE: After an investigation, it was not possible to confirm the existence of coins with years 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2007.
On Krause catalog the 2 first and the last are listed, but not the 2004. None of the 4 years are listed on other 3 Cuban catalogs checked.
Therefore, if you think you have one of these, please check carefully and correct your listing if is mistakenly registered, or please send picture of the coin to referee, if you really have it.


1994 minted in Canada, with medal rotation; rest of the years in Havana, with coin rotation.

The colonial house is a very common construction in every town and city of Cuba, even at Havana. Many of those were built in the 15th to 19th centuries, and are in good conservation conditions. Some of them are museums, like the house of Diego Velázquez, 1st governor of Cuba and founder of 7 towns. His house was built about 1516/1530 and is a museum where are shown articles, furniture and decorations of different ages, from 1500 to 1900.
