My favourite design of the current Paraguyan series is on the reverse of the 1000 guaranies.

I like its large, bold text, which is presented in an artistic manner that enhances the design.

UK, 50 pence, 2018.

Recent UK coins show a similar use of bold textual design.

See my topic: UK text-heavy 50 pence designs.

Paraguay 1973.jpg

Our forum member Big_M has informed me that Paraguay issued various collector coins in 1973 with portraits of military men.

These same portraits, which had earlier been used on banknotes, were later also used on some circulation coins from 1975 onwards.

The denominations of the relevant collector coins issued in 1973 were 150 guaraníes (silver) and 1500 and 4500 guaraníes (gold).

Below you see a screenshot from numista of the 1500 guaraníes coins.

That makes me wonder now how many variation types there are and how they are classified or numbered in catalogues. There are differences in weight, size (diameter, thickness), alloy / colour, and minor legend variations - as well as mint marks and other marks.


Many are NOT in the catalogs, hence my work on the documentations in numista of ALL varieties (in catalog or not).
