Cuba 1981.jpg


In 1981 Cuba issued a new coinage for foreign tourists. The name of Cuba's tourist agency was INTUR, and this appeared on all the coins.

Curiously, some of the coins of 1981 showed their denomination in words AND numerals, and some just in words. However, the lower denominations came in both varieties - with and without numerals - whilst the 50 centavos and 1 peso coins showed their denomination in words only. Below you see the two 5 centavos varieties of 1981.

In the euro area, the Austrian low denomination coins (1, 2 and 5 ct) have the sub-unit spelled out on the national side. So you see EIN, ZWEI and FÜNF ... but above that, it's digits. Oh well, repeating the face value on the country specific sides is against the current rules anyway. Will have to be fixed by 2062. ;D
