Peru switched from the Sol to the Inti in 1985, then in another round of monetary reform they switched to the Nuevo Sol in 1991. In 2015 the "Nuevo" was dropped, and the currency was once again the Sol.
This circulating commemorative coin is from the "Endangered Fauna of Peru" series and features a Andean mountain cat, a small, endangered, cat that lives at high altitudes in the Andes.It has mostly grey fur and looks very similar to the Pampas cat.
