Some varieties on modern coins of Sudan.

    Generally the "Standard Catalog of World Coins" (KP Books) is quite good at detailing and illustrating different sub-types of world coins where differences are difficult to see until you have been told about them. However for Sudan, even for coins of 10 to 20 years of ago a few sub-types are not all individually illustrated or detailed comprehensively. There are even a few such varieties that are not mentioned. Here are a few examples.

Obverses of 20 Ghirsh KM-101.1 and KM-101.2
Obverses of 20 Ghirsh KM-101.1 and KM-101.2 (Scale is 200dpi)

    These are 20 Ghirsh KM-101.1 - obverse features small denomination numeral and 20 Ghirsh KM-101.2 - obverse features large denomination numeral. Also notice that the size of the denomination name “Ghirsh” below the number “20” is larger on KM-101.1 than on KM-101.2.

The obverses differ in a number of ways but mainly Obv.A. has large denomination numeral, Arabic “5”. Obv.B. has small denomination numeral, Arabic “5”. As for the reverses, Rev.A. has larger state emblem with smaller centre section to upper ribbon. Rev.B. has smaller state emblem with longer centre section to upper ribbon.

introduced for circulation in 1956 - some of those types are amongst the easiest Sudanese coins to find.
