KM-13 variety.

A cool issue which is all but certain to appear in an upcoming numismatic trivia contest:

Q:  Name a coin on which the featured obverse portrait is also the denomination.
A:  Yes!

Because of course that guy in the cool helmet is Vasco Nuñez de Balboa (Spanish explorer best known for crossing the Isthmus of Panama to the Pacific Ocean in 1513, becoming the first European to lead an expedition to reach the Pacific from the New World) and the denomination is, wait for it, Un Balboa.

And this is a superb piece with wild color neatly highlighting the design.
