The 12th coin of the series has been put into circulation on the 20th of March 2013. The coin features the Templo Inca Huaytara (Inca Temple of Huaytara) located in the central-eastern region of Huancavelica. The temple was built in the early 15th century by the Inca Pachacutec and during colonial times converted into a Catholic church. The archaeological complex is a declared Cultural Heritage of the Nation.

 Presumably used as palace for an Inca royalty or for religious ceremonies and the worship of the Inca gods, the Inca Temple of Huaytara has a rectangular base and was constructed with carved stones 1.65 m thick and up to 3.70 m high. Really beautiful are the numerous alcoves inside the building.
