by an expert colleague:
 
actually the 'broken' plural of ūqiya is awāqi(n), not just awāq.  however the 'whole' or 'intact' plural ūqiyāt is also admissible but scarcely usable for this very word.

A new coin with a face value of "2 Ouguiya" has been added to complete the new series.

Banque Centrale de Mauritanie - ????? ??????? ??????????

This is one of the most beautiful coin series currently in circulation.

Interesting and unexpected. It appears the 1 Ouguiya coin is much harder to counterfeit than the 2 Ouguiya coin.  ::)

Very good news.
Thanks Jostein.

Why did they skip 2 Ougiya coin when designing a new series?

Yes, a really beautiful series.
20 Ougiya got the prize in WMF this year

Ever since Seychelles had to change from plated steel coin to steel coin

There is a trend to go for stainless steel coins

Which mint has minted this coin, Jostein? Paris or Kremnica?
