Peru 1-SOL (KM-new) Jaguar
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 the Jaguar (Panthera onca), the largest native cat in the Americas. It is considered a keystone species, and lives at the top of the food chain.
