150th Anniversary of Independence. The coin also celebrates Tupac Amaru II who began the independence movement, which eventually lead to independence and was an inspiration to all of Latin America for independence from Spain. See the link below in order to get a history of these events and a numismatic legacy. This coin was not mentioned in the article, so I included her because the history is little known and important to South America. This one year type has a mintage of 100k.
To commemorate the 150 years anniversary independence for the Republic of Peru, the Central Reserve Bank of Peru (Banco Central de Reserva del Perú or BCRP) issued a series commemorative coins in denominations of 5, 10 and 50 soles.

The 50 soles was
Túpac Amaru acceded to the monarchy in 1571, following the death of his predecessors, and was named Sapa Inca of the Neo-Inca state. The state was the last remaining stronghold of the great Incan Empire in Vilcabamba, Peru and saw the final years of the Spanish conquest, which ran for 40 years from 1532 to 1571. The last Sapa Inca was captured by the Spaniards and brutally executed in September 1571.
