Peru 1996 sol KM-308.1
This type, issued 1991-96 from Lima, superseded the inflation ravaged inti (1 nuevo sol = one million intis). Amazingly, this reform has stuck and the nuevo sol is still in use tho this design is no longer in production. A nuevo sol commemorative (KM 319) exists for 1996. As of August 2019, US$1 = S/. 3.356.
Recorded mintage: 10,000,000.
Specification: 7.32 g, copper-nickel-zinc, 25.5 mm diameter.
Catalog reference: KM 308.1.
