In January 2017 Argentina is going to issue redesigned coins of 1 and 2 pesos. Furthermore the 5 and 10 pesos denominated notes will become coins. The 5 pesos coin will depict José de San Martín and the 10 pesos coin will depict Manuel Belgrano.

The issuance of the coins was planned for January 2017 but so far nobody has seen them and the Central Bank of Argentina hasn't given any information about these new coins since November last year.

The issuance of the coins has been postponed until the last trimester of 2017. The issuance of a redesigned 1 peso coin is no longer being mentioned. It is clear that the state mint of Argentina is very busy with minting the new coins as they had to put the minting of other coins up for tender.
