Some of the images are not very clear, but we can see the artistic intentions.

Until recent years, it was almost obligatory for Latin American countries to depict at least one of their liberation heroes on at least one of their circulation coins; in the case of Colombia, this was usually Simón Bolívar. So we can see that this new thematic set represents a modernisation of the coins in more way than one.

Great plot! Thanks to you, Guillermo and WCN.

I think the designs in reply 7 and 8 are superb. I hope they will surface again next time people think of redesigning their coins.
