2. Bi-metallic 2 Euro 2019 from San Marino….by Martin Peeters, The Netherlands

The Ufficio Philatelic and Numismatic San Marino has unveiled this week officially data concerning the issuance of its first coin of a Bi-metallic
2 Euro commemorative 2019, dedicated like that of Italy to the "500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci ".
The first thing that attracts attention, according to data provided is that the Bi-metallic 2 Euro coin commemorating the lowest of all issued to date
 by San Marino pulled, the 54,150 pieces that will be issued on 4 April, become the most exclusive

3. Bi-metallic 5, 10 and 50 Rouble from Russia……by Martin Peeters, The Netherlands
The Bank of Russia issued in a series called Red Book of Russia, series that over the years they have being issued has included currencies of different
facial, metals and other which they were specifically issued to be put into circulation.

In total there were fifteen circulating coins and Bi-metallic type which were issued between 1991 to 1994, had facial of 5 Roubles the first three,
the following three spent 10 Roubles and the last ten rose to 50 Roubles.

The images taken from the web forum Numista show the original 15 coins were issued. The fact that mintage was not very high, 300,000 each,
which was Bi-metallic coins with animal motifs, joined Russia has a number of collectors, made these pieces revalorizasen quickly

Today some of these coins are still a fairly high price that can reach 60 euros or more. The problem for which wants to acquire is that there are many
of them false. In Chinese pages selling items of all kinds, well known around the world for years began to see these complete sets of coins at prices far
below normal prices. The most "honest" the advertised as replicas, others they were "forgot" to put it.

Both above and below this text, we can see current images of the "replicas" that are still seen for sale. As you can see the difference with the original
it is low. They like to have them in hand is clearly seen that are not original, but if we acquire an online purchase, we can give very easily for a ride.
