Dear WBCC members and non WBCC members,

Welcome into the World of Bi-, Tri- and Tetra-metallics. I hope you enjoy reading this week's issue of the WBCC Newsmail.

1. Bi-metallic 20 Rouble 2016 from Pabitra Saha, UK
Here a picture of the Bi-metallic 20 Roubles 2016 from Belarus, Silver Gold commemorate the Olympics

2. Bi-metallic 2 Dollar 2012 from Frans Woons, Canada
There seems to be a report out there, indicating that the pure silver toonies struck since 2012, are of a one-piece construction with gilded centres. 
In other words, these coins are not ‘ringed’
However, this report is inaccurate.  I was able to separate a 2012 silver toony into a ring and a plug.  The plug is gilded on both sides and the edge.

3. Bi-metallic MTT from Stanislaw Bulawski, Poland
Here pictures of 2 new Bi-metallic MTT's from Poland struck by the Jura Mint
