Here's a Five CentÚsimos coin from the US Mint-struck Panama Type Set I am building. It is the second coin of a two-year type (1929 was the other year it was struck); it has a mintage of 332,000. The coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

It is a copper-nickel coin with a weight of five grams and a diameter of 21.3 mm - almost identical to the US five-cent nickel's diameter of 21.21 mm. In hand, it is an attractive coin with nice cartwheel luster.

That looks like a real beauty!

Cupronickel coinage doesn;t seem to be terribly "sexy" (for lack of a better word), but older specimens in high grade can be really attractive.

What is the target number of types?

I'm currently targeting 24 types which includes a few same design-different metallic composition coins.
