Algeria first issued this beautiful bi-metallic coin in 1992. I had a hard time coming by one of these, but eventually found what I thought was a well-worn example. However, I eventually obtained this uncirculated example and found that the engraving is shallow and/or the strike is weak. However, that does not detract from the quality of the big cat portrait.
