The design fits in nicely with the other denominations. As for the face value, well, East Timor does not have its own currency but uses the US dollar. So maybe people have become used to the "duality" of TL centavo coins and US dollar notes ... Just a guess. :)

You can see the other Timor (centavo) coins here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Timor_centavo_coins

So this coin has face value of 100 Centavos or 1 USD. Interesting!

What makes it more interesting is that it's much heavier than the other denominations: the second highest denominated  50 Centavos coin weighs 6.5 g while this coin weighs whooping 14 g!

Said on worldcoinsnews that only 2,000 coins were minted.  :-\

edit: a little more checked at wbcn, there are 50 million coins. That's enough for circulation.
Really love to have one.  ;D

edit2: just noticed that 2000 coins weigh 14 grams while those 50 million coins weigh 7 grams.

If you had checked the map, you would have looked for South East Asia. Moreover. When you are on the home screen, and you type "Timor" in the search box, you should have pulled up the topic quite easily.

So the Portuguese mint sells the piedfort-type version (mintage 2,000), but the "regular" version is 7 instead of 14 grams?

By the way, calling the regular version a circulating commem makes some sense, it seems. 28 November was the day of the "Centenary of the Revolt of Dom Boaventura (1912 – 2012) festivities", see here (at the bottom) and here. Don't know whether there is an English language article about Boaventura. Here is one in German, and one of the references (5 - Canberra Times) takes you to an English text with some more info about him ...

Hmm that's interesting. I know Royal Mint (UK) makes piedfort type version specifically for collectors, so now they have got a partner. ;)

Hi friends!

I don't know if this coin has 2 versions, but I think that 14 gr for only 23.75 is too much. Maybe, the weight that is described in the Portuguese Mint includes the folder too. Will be minted 2,000 coins in folder, and another 2,000 in the complet BU-Set with the rest of the coins: 4,000 coins in total.


Best,

Like a curiosity, we can see in the banners of the Bank of East Timor, the just minted coin, but in brass colour instead in bimetallic... ::)

So I think that this coin was already planned earlier.
