Jose Gabriel Condorcanqui Tupac Amaru II.
Reverse: Alpinist; snow-capped mountains.
Amaru II (1738-1781) was the leader of an indigenous
uprising in 1780 against the Spaniards in colonial Peru. Although
unsuccessful, he later became a mythical figure in the Peruvian struggle
for independence and indigenous rights movement and an inspiration to a
myriad of causes in Peru, as diverse as the Revolutionary Government
of the Armed Forces (1968-1980), the Shining Path (also known as the
Communist Party of Peru) and the MRTA.
