Can anyone help me with km number?
I checked in my SCWC and there is listed 3 types in the same year. Unfortunately my camera broke and i cant take a picture.
If someone can describe me the differences it would be a great help.


Here are the pictures.

KM 112.1 has larger letters in the outer rings
KM 112.2 has smaller letters in the outer ring (KM says smaller arms, this is a mistake)
KM 112.3 has a spelling error: PROVINGIAS, instead of PROVINCIAS.

I hope this clears it up.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Thank you for your help Peter.
Thats why i was confused. I couldnt find any differences in the arms


Unless it's just an artefact of the photos, there seem to be considerable differences in the sun's face on each, too.


The face is slightly different on all three types in my collection. However, my 112.1 is 1994, not 1995.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Apart from what Figleaf and FosseWay mentioned, there's also a difference in the digit '9' in date. The extreme left coin has sharp '9', middle coin has rounded '9' and the extreme right coin is the error coin. 8)

I have the first two varieties but not the third..

There are many variants of this coin. They were minted on France and Korea.

Here are my pieces, including the error one:

KM #112.1:
KM #112.2:
KM #112.3:


What are the other variants?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


This coin represents the first national coin (8 soles).
They were minted abroad because the "Casa de Moneda" didn't have the equipment to mint bimetallic coins. Only after 2006 they were able to mint them in Argentina.
The mintmark is located in the dots between the "REPUBLICA ARGENTINA" and "PRIMERA MONEDA PATRIA". Also they can be distinguished by the sun rays and the number of leaves.

These are the mintages:
1994: Korea (A) 75.000.000
1995: Korea (A) 185.000.000
1995: England (B) 14.000.000
1995: England (B) 56.000.000 (error Provingias)
1995: France (C) 90.000.000
1996: Korea (A) 30.000.000
2006: Sociedad del Estado Casa de Moneda (no mintmark) 30.000.000
2007: SDECDM 33.000.000
2008: SDECDM 89.600.000
2009: SDECDM 37.000.000
2009: Mexico (D) 141.000.000


To clear up this theme, here are two screenshots from the Argentinean coin catalog and my documentations, as well.
