More on the 20 Schilling.
1982-1991 Each year had a different design.

1991-1993
All the previous designs were re-issued with these years dates.

1994-2001
Additional new designs each year.

This reminds me somewhat of the strategy adopted with the round pound: different for a five year period, then some designs repeated for a five year period, then a different set of designs. I wonder who first adopted this idea of producing different annual designs for the highest circulating denomination?
