East Timor 2011 & 2013 - New subtypes

New East Timor subtypes of 5, 10, 25 and 50 centavos exist with different mint mark, and also with considerable different denomination numerals: the new series shows thick and bold figures, while the previous ones showed thinner numerals.

The 5 and 10 centavos from 2011 exist in both varieties, the new thicker 25 and 50 centavos only exist for year 2013.

Old issues bear a small letter C at left of the date. New issues bear a small BCTL at left of date (for Cental Bank of Timor Leste).

Upper row shows the existing previous designs. Bottom row shows the new strikes, with bolder numerals:
