Chile Peso - a one year issue of .900 fine. One interesting feature of this coin is the use of the traditional Communist symbol of the Hammer & Sickle on the reverse. All references to this symbol, that I can find so far, say this iconic image was first used by the Russian Soviets. It appears on the coins of the R.S.F.S.R., and later on the U.S.S.R., all through their histories. The last country to use this symbol is Transnistria (Moldavian Republic, they are presented in the Museum). Chile first used the Hammer & Sickle on their coins beginning in 1895. So there's a chance that the Soviets borrowed this ideal symbol, representing agriculture and industry, from Chile. Chile, I believe, was the first country to devise a welfare system. I plan on presenting thorough research on this, and other Communist symbology, here in the future. Contact me if you have any information.
