Quote from: Bimat on January 03, 2014, 07:05:16 PMThe Central Bank's press release says that it's a commemorative issue (30th Anniversary of Central Bank of Comoros) so one year type only. So strictly speaking, it's not a major change in circulating sets... Aditya
Quote from: Jostein on January 03, 2014, 08:28:52 PMYeah it's a commemorative coin, but is part of the new coin series revised, smaller and lighter than the actual set:http://www.ambafrance-km.org/Une-nouvelle-gamme-de-pieces-dehttp://www.ambafrance-km.org/IMG/pdf/Plaquette_BCC_A5part2.pdfThe new monetary structure is: 25, 50, 100 and 250 KMF instead 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 KMF
Quote from: <k> on January 03, 2014, 05:34:04 PMVery interesting news, Pabitra. Realistic portraits of animals have been with us for a long time in the modern era, but usually they would stand alone in the depiction, or sometimes on a clump of earth. The more recent innovation is to add more background, to fill out the scene and make it more realistic still. This will evidently be the case with the zebra. The idea of adding sorghum heads to the rhino does not appeal to me - will they be mere decoration, such as you find in a wreath, or will they be (as I hope) a realistic addition?
Quote from: Pabitra on January 02, 2014, 12:04:52 PMAnother change which is taking place slowly over a period of two years is that of Tunisia.50 and 100 Millimes may be issued in plated form this year.
Quote from: Pabitra on February 03, 2014, 01:36:42 PMI do not know if it would come to acceptable criteria of major change.
Quote from: Pabitra on February 03, 2014, 01:30:06 PM<k> Are you sure that is only 22mm diameter.I think it retains its old size of 25 mm but can confirm only when I have the coin in hand.20 millimes was 22 mm in diameter and was plated steel between 2007-2011; Although the minting has not taken place for two years but it is still legal tender. It was given S#205a by WMK although SCWC failed to recognise brass plated steel as different from Brass.I think that Tunisia would not have minted Brass plated steel as well as reduced the size.
Quote from: Pabitra on February 03, 2014, 01:36:42 PMAnother change in coinage expected is Pakistan.Earlier, 10 Rupees denomination was reserved for commem coins.Now that has been changed to 20 Rupees.
