Cuba, 3 pesos, 1992.  Che Guevara.

This great portrait was created by the famous Czechoslovak artist, Miroslav Ronai. You can see his signature MR on the 1990's ten koruna coins too.

That portrait was in turn modelled on Alberto Korda's iconic photograph, taken in 1960.

The star on his beret looks like a cross on the picture, though I suspect it is the Cuban 5-pointed star upside down. Now look at the piece in the initial post...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
