1997 5 Colones

I am again contacting The E-Sylum for assistance, which has proven very valuable in the past. I am writing a book on the Salvadorian Colon, which was discontinued at the start of the present century, after the Salvadorian economy was "dollarized".

I am now in search of an image of the never-circulated 5-Colón bi-metallic piece dated 1996. Both 1996 and 1997 dates were produced; the first one, being a presentation piece. I do have the 1997 coin, but am lacking the 1996 image.

Would anyone have this coin in his/her collection, and be willing to share the image for inclusion in the book? Needless to say, I would give due credit to the owner.

Can anyone help? Would anyone have the 1996 piece, or an image of it? Thanks. -Editor
