Peru 1-SOL (KM-new) Yellow-tailed woolly monkey
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 Yellow-tailed woolly monkey, a very rare and critically endangerred primate found only in the Peruvian Andes.
Thank you to Maria for sending this coin to me and helping keep the Peru section of the Coin Zoo up to date!
