Egypt 50 piastres 2007 - 2 types

I found 2 types of KM942.2: the numerals are clearly different styles. Cleopatra's hair and face are quite different too.

2007 in detail:

Hair and 1368 in detail:

Head and tiara in detail:

Any information about their minting places will be great! Please send clues, and then find them here:

Gerhard Schön: one was minted in Cairo, the other one in Llantrisant.


  1. What metals are these? I think that the 2007 was minted in both brass and plated steel. I have two plated ones which both look like the one on the right.

  2. I've got both of them, and they are both magnetic.
