C’est seulement la seconde fois que nous proposons cette version d’essai de frappe à la vente. Le sigle AMM du revers signifie Administration des Monnaies et Médailles.
À noter que nous répertorions cet essai en GEM.196/12 var. à cause de l’absence du bourrelet entre les deux parties de la monnaie, ce qui sous-entend un mode d’assemblage différent.
