From what I understand, the new 100 Dinars coin will depict the Alcomsat-1 satellite flying over the globe. It was launched in 2017 and is the first Algerian communication satellite.

The design of the new standard circulating 100 dinars coin will be unveiled this Sunday, February 3. From that same day it will also already be put into circulation.

The image is not clear but it seems the year is 2968-2018-1439 (berber, gregorian, hijri). Are there other circulation coins with berber year?

Will the rest of the series be updated too? 5, 10, 20 and 50 dinars coin. In my opinion, Algeria had one of the best coin design series all over the world.

Best,

There is no information on whether the designs of the other coins will be updated too.

From the design, one could even infer that it is a circulating commemorative type.
But then Algeria has been minting 200 Dinars for many years although it was issued as a commemorative coin.

Mr André Milhorat sent me the following images of the minted coins. The micro lettering of the figure '100' is interesting. The coin's value is equal to 74 euro cents.
