The World Coin News blog reported the following in June 2023:

Transnistria 2020 - New design of the coat of arms

However, I cannot see the difference between the old arms and the new.

Can anybody explain?

The page you referred to states:-

"The 2019 coins bear one design, while the 2020, 2022 and 2023 bear a new one:"

I can see that for 2019 the 5-pointed star at the top of the coat of arms has an outline on the 2019 coins but for 2020, 2020 and 2023 the star does not have an outline. (Likely there are some other differences with the relief of this star.)

Also, I can see that for 2019 there are several lines of waves above where the central section of ribbon includes "PMH", there would seem to be several lines of waves on the pieces of later dates. There are some other differences between the 2019 dated piece shown and those of later dates, those differences are harder to describe from the not so large images.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

Thank you. I did think that I noticed these vague differences from the rather small images.

Not really such a big change after all, then.
