New circulating commemorative:

"High Jump Gold Medalist Iliesa Delana"

At the London 2012 Paralympic Games, Iliesa's jump cleared the bar of 1.74 m, breaking the Oceania record for the event and he became the first Fijian ever to win gold at Paralympics or Olympics level.

Only 500,000 pieces have been minted for normal circulation.
