Paraguay 50-CENTIMOS (KM28) Lion

In 1944 Paraguay introduced a reform coinage, replacing the peso with the guarani (100 centimos = 1 guarani). The original round 50 centimos coin was replaced by this scalloped edge coin. It was minted in 1953 only.

Above the lion are the words 'paz y justicia' which translates as 'peace and justice'. Above the lion, on a pole, is a liberty cap.
