I think you mean KM# 444?

Numismaster says that it has a mintage of 20,275,000. More than enough for coin collectors. ;) Catalog prices aren't high either, $8 for unc and $10 for BU. Even I don't have it, and I don't see it on e-bay very often either. May be other members will be able to give some more details.

It is hard to find - I have one but not in UNC (Aditya, I thought I sent you one ???)
Two problems are that they still use the 5 Dinar banknote, and that it is (was?) illegal under Tunisian law to take coin out of the country - it is subject to confiscation by the government.

For Bimat : Yes ! is KM #444 ( bi-metallic copper-nickel center in copper ring ) , mintage 20,275,000....
and in the last catalog there is a second variety : KM #350 ( coper-nickel center in brass ring ) , price $8 in BU

For Andyg : yes , i know that is illegal under Tunisian law to take coin out country , but the others Tunisian coins are easy to find !

I have never seen KM#444... plenty of KM#350 though.  Does anyone have any proof that KM#444 exists?

It would really rather seem that Tunisia KM-444 and KM-443 are duplication of KM-350 and KM-350a respectively.

KM-443 and KM-444 should be removed.
