Mauritania has now 3 new types:

1 Ouguiya: 20.0 mm, 3.8g, plain edge, ni plated steel, new type (as it's new metal)

5 Ouguiya: 24.0 mm, 5.5g, plain edge, co plated steel, new type (as it's 1 mm smaller than previous years)

10 Ouguiya: 24.5 mm, 6.0g, reeded edge, ni plated steel, existing type KM#4a

20 Ouguiya: 26.0 mm, 7.0g, segmented reeded edge, bimetallic: ni plated steel center, brass plated steel ring, new type
