Minifusor Clásico, a modern re-drawing of the Catalan pattern published by Difusora, c.1980. The ace of coins features the Argentine flag in front of the Spanish flag. Different editions reveal different qualities; some are lower grade than others and plastic coatings vary.
The manufacturer's details can often be found on the four of coins but in some cases are omitted. Also, some colour variations can be observed between editions, see for example the kings’ robes and the red spot in the centre of the coin symbols.
