Dear WBCC members and non WBCC members,

Celebration time !! You read now WBCC Newsmail 250, this means 250 weeks in
a row news about Bi- and Tri-metallics. (coins, tokens, medals and
commemoratives) In the history of the Internet it is the first time to do
this 250 weeks !! Thanks to all the WBCC members who helped me to reach this
milestone !!

1. The New WBCC Webside !!...by Martin Peeters, WBCC Focal Point

WBCC members, the moment you have waited for has arrived. We've been
anxiously waiting for this Newsmail to share with you something big that is
happening within our club. I'm certain everyone is familiar with the WBCC
Website that Rod Sell in Australia has maintained so faithfully for the past
5 years. Well, the WBCC is getting a new Website and it's own domain name,
and Rod gets to relax for a while. Rod will still maintain the WBCC Auction
Pages.

One of our newest members, JD White #211 in the USA, who has a background in
graphic arts and website design, is working on the new design. He promises a
user friendly site that will load quickly. The new URL is http://wbcc-online.com
The Website on the dYneXgroup server which
means that there won't be any more banners or frames to hinder your access.

At the time of this writing, the new Website can be viewed, but please
remember that it is still under construction. After all, Rod had 5 years to
place all of the data online. JD has only had a week or so to work on the
design. We hope you enjoy the new site and the growth the club is
experiencing. Please feel free to send your comments and questions
concerning the new WBCC Website and it's home directly to WBCC
Webmaster JD White.
So the following changes are in the WBCC Organisation:
WBCC Auction Coordinator: Rod Sell, Australia,
WBCC Webmaster, JD White, USA.

2. WBCC Newsmail 250 (1)..by Rod Sell, WBCC member #20

It is pleasing to see us reach this milestone with the same enthusiasm that
we had 250 weeks ago when the WBCC was started.

Thinking back over the past 250 weeks I can see the gradual development of
the Club from a small group of enthusiastic collectors to the Main Reference
Source of Bi-Metallic Information that we have become. I don't think this
information is collectively available anywhere else, so we are providing a
community service.

It is also interesting to note how the Bi-metallic theme has grown. I am
sure it has been given a boost by the WBCC and the information available to
anyone who would like it. It is very hard to collect anything when you don't
know what has been produced.

When I think back to the early days when there were only 100 or so
Bi-metallics to collect, it was much easier. Today it is imposible to keep
up with the numbers being produced. It is also difficult to keep the image
library up to date with the latest releases. We are very lucky that the
participation by our many members all around the World does keep us up to
date with most of the new releases. Without your help this Club would not be
the recognised reference body that it is.

I view our Club with Pride, for what we have achieved. The WBCC does live up
to it's name and even more because it supplies the information to who ever
wishes to view it. We are truely the UN of coin clubs.

Today with JD White expanding the WBCC Website we move on to the next phase.
The size and complexity of our site has demanded a change in structure and I
am sure, like in the past 250 weeks, there will be changes as they are
required, in the future. I know JD has the expertise to develop the site and
make it more user friendly.

When I first started collecting Bi-metallics I considered it keeping up to
date with modern issues. I very soon learned there were a lot of earlier
Bi-metallics issued. The English tin coins with copper plugs of the Stuart
Dynasty. The English Model coins of the 1840s. The French essay pieces of
the early 1800s. The US Bi-metallic Token and Transit series, plus many
others. For me these were the items of main interest as they had historical
significance and were also very difficult to locate, even if only for a
picture.

Where do we go from here. I am not sure, but I do know if the next 250 weeks
progress like the past 250 we will have a super WBCC.

3. WBCC Newsmail 250 (2)..by Larry Friemel, WBCC member #3

Although I have not been active in the club for a while, I continue to look
forward each week to the newsmail and all of the new Bi-metallic information
being contributed by the clubs growing membership. As one of the early
members, I have found the WBCC not only a great means to add to my
Bi-metallic coin collection, but more important a window into the world. It
caused me early on to go out and purchase a new world map and atlas, as many
of the countries I had studied in school no longer existed. It has helped me
learning more about the world around me simply because I wanted to know more
about the Bi-metallic pieces I was collecting. If it were not for collecting
Bi-metallic coins, I probably would not have had much knowledge of the
European conversion to the Euro as it has gotten little press in the United
States nor would I have any idea where in time Axumite existed. More
importantly, I found I was not only collecting coins, but many new friends
in the process. These contacts were made possible because the WBCC is the
only world wide coin collector organization based on the internet -- which
knows no boundaries. This brainchild of Martin's has been enhanced by the
addition of various board members as the club has evolved. I personally want
to thank each of them for their dedication to gathering material for the
weekly newsmail, running down answers to questions, representing the club at
various numismatic shows, keeping the website current and trying new ideas
to keep the members interested; such as, the weekly trivia questions and
coin auction. Finally, my thanks to all of the WBCC membership for their
various and numerous contributions to the hobby and especially their help in
adding to my collection.

4. WBCC Newsmail 250 (3)..by Cliff Anderson, WBCC member #38

Frankly, I cannot imagine being able to do anything once a week for 250
times in a row, let alone something as significant and time-consuming as the
WBCC's newsmail. Quite a feat, for Martin! Well done.

The occasion of WBCC's 250th newsmail causes me to identify and relish my
favorites in the several catagories of Bi-metallics. Here's what I came up
with.

* Encased: Canadian Emanuel Hahn's Voyageur dollar, and of course our own
WBCC Basel Money Fair Bahamas one cent
* Modern commemorative medal: Elvis with 18 lines of finely worded text
* Old US trade tokens: Liberty Trading Co., Madera, PA, $10, scalloped edge
and signed by W. P. Cornely, Treasurer
* Odd denomination and curiously named: Good for $23.50 in trade on a
"Winter Book Evans' Bang Tails" (what a name!), with stamped serial number
* Canadian MTT: from the city of Nanaimo, British Columbia, which calls
itself the "bathtub capital of the world."
* Commercial usage: Spitalfields 2 Shilling token, square with a four petal
style copper center
* Most picturesque: 1933 Santa Monica Breakwater with reclining bathing
beauty
* Most unique metal combination: copper in brass, as seen in the F&S Smoke
Shop piece

* Various private mints: Osborne Mint (whose pieces have a hole designed in
the outer ring for suspension, including Columbus), and Roger Williams Mint
which produces the attractive municipal tokens (Los Angeles, Metro Dade,
Charlotte, and Santa Fe).
* US historical: the two main designs of the Bickford Dollar
* World historical:
1892 relic medal from wreck of Hudson Bay Co. SS Beaver
1889 Saxony medal for King Albert, diamond shaped with portrait and
cityscape
* English Victorian model pieces: Victorian model crown by Hyams
* Good luck piece: 1914 Austrian encased piece showing dual portraits of
Austrian and German kaisers, horseshoe is upside down (maybe not so lucky)
* Amusement token: pieces which are holed and star shaped
* Numismatic piece: a piece dated May 20-21, 1950, at Centralia WN, in which
a facsimile of an 1820 North West Company token with George III or IV
grinning and a beaver, in a ring inscribed with 4 numismatic organizations
(Pacific Northwest Coin Club 1950, Oregon Numismatic Society, Seattle Coin
Club, and the ANA)
* Silver Strike: the Luxor Hotel limited edition $10 gaming token with a
gorgeously engraved Egyptian statue with outstretched arms holding a spread
of wings (over 60 double rows of feathers)
* US transit tokens:
1968 Delaware Memorial Bridge token
2001 Charlotte $1 "trolley" parking and transit token
* Canadian transit token: Hull hexagonal with inset "H"
* Fantasy pieces: Edward VIII restrikes, usually depends on what country's
symbol is the most alluring
* Most controversial: Slovenia's six 1999 and 2000 pieces, two of which
were criticized or banned.
* Best designed: Sri Lanka, Mexican 50 peso KM 571, child heros against US
Maldives trimetal, enamelled
* Best series: Austria
* Best whimsy: Australia

* Tri-metallics: France's 20 franc Mont St. Michel. When evaluating the
Tri-metallics I know of, I realize what we've all seen, that except for the
French and Monaco 20 franc pieces, no other country has produced regular
circulation coins. The other Tri-metallics all seem to be the fantasy pieces
issued as collector items. Surely, Andorra's Millenium piece was not meant
for circulation. London's ICB/Tower Mint restrikes and variations on the
Edward VIII pieces and the others for other countries (Peru, Somalia,
Maldive, etc.), fit this pattern. Apparently Triimetallics are too expensive
to produce for circulation coins.

One more observation: The WBCC has been the best opportunity I've in my life
to make good and lasting friendships around the world.

5. WBCC Newsmail 250 (4)...by Hans Bucek, WBCC member #66

I just had a few moment of time to check for the recent issue of the WBCC
Newsmail magazine before leaving for vacation to spain. Will be bach in
about 3 weeks from now and definitively late for a contribution to the 250th
issue. But there will an other jubilee, isnt it so. Good luck for the
forthcoming issue and my best personal wishes and thanks for your great
work. The day will come with a Bi-metallic issue, bearing your portrait.
Better than a monument. Please convey also my best regards to Jack who gives
the magazin an extra touch.

6. Bi- and Tri-metallic counterfeits..by Frans Dubois, WBCC member #2

About 20 years ago the first Bi-metallic circulation-coins were introduced
in the world of modern coinage. This fact changed the world of coinage.
Ofcourse it was the start of a new generation of coincollectors and the
source of the WBCC but in fact these Bi-metallic coins had to stop the
counterfeiters who were active since men started minting coins. These coins
had to stop the counterfeiters because it would be to difficult and
expensive. But about ten years ago it was in France that the counterfeiters
showed that this idea was not manageable. The Bi-metallic 10 franc, that was
issued since 1987, was counterfeited so much that it was accepted in the
regular payments and the false coins were made of all years of issue, even
of 1993, the year that the 10 franc was only in the set! Last year the first
false Tri-metallic 20 franc was found in payment, so even the Tri-metallic
coins are now counterfeited. Till now I found false Bi-metallic coins from
Poland, Israel, Argentina, Great Britain and I am sure there will be more
countries that have false Bi-metallic coins in circulation.
In 2002 the Bi-metallic 1 and 2 Euro will circulate in 12 countries in
Europe. I wonder how long it will take before we find the new false Euro's!
I think this can be an interesting part of Bi-metallic coin collecting. The
WBCC will keep his members informed in the next 250 Newsmails!

7. Travels with WBCC....by Jack Hepler, WBCC member #147

When I joined the WBCC, I had only a modest interest in Bi-metallics but
found them very attractive and quite novel. I had found one in my change
while visiting the Czech Republic and still think the 50 Korun is the most
beautiful of the current circulating Bi-metallic coins. But joining the WBCC
became more than just another club to belong to. I have discovered some very
nice people. After exchanging messages with some of the members, I found
myself wanting to see them face-to-face. In 1999, my wife and I went to The
Netherlands where we met Martin Peeters and Frans Dubois. They were the best
of hosts, helping us see parts of the country we may not have seen
otherwise. We now feel like we are part of their families. My wife and I
went on to Finland where we met Kari Hurskainen and toured Helsinki, Turku
and Naantali. Turku is where the biggest cruise ships are built and we will
be cruising this autumn, maybe on a Turku ship.
WBCC members were asked if interested in the 2000 World Money Fair, Martin
had reserved a table there for the WBCC. This seemed like a wonderful trip,
so I again returned to The Netherlands and rode with Martin and Frans to
Basel for the Fair. We met and dined with a terriffic member, Hans Bucek of
Switzerland. On the return trip, we stopped in France and joined Christian
Dolt and his family for dinner. The American Numismatic Association
conference and show in Philadelphia provided a wonderful forum in the US for
the WBCC as Ray Lockwood hosted Martin and me at a table jointly chaired by
the Central States Numismatic Society and the WBCC.
The World Money Fair in Basel was host to the WBCC again in 2001, with an
even better table site. I believe the WBCC is now a permanent fixture at the
WMF. There is a lot of excitement in Europe anticipating the introduction of
the Euro coinage into circulation next year, and the WBCC is right in the
middle of the fun.
So, you can see, the WBCC has meant more to me than just another club. Maybe
some day, I'll be able to visit more members. I really hope so.

8. My Bi-metallic Story (1)......by Paul Baker, WBCC member #85

As "WBCC Research Centre" I tend to pay as much attention to _collecting
information_ about Bi-metallics as I do to actually _collecting examples_
of this type of coin. Often these two things help and encourage one another.
For example - if I find lots of information out about a certain coin then
that can often encourage me to buy an example. There are also occasions when
I find out some information (new to the WBCC) that tells us about some new
coin issues - this often leads to the acquisition of some of these new
issues. There are also times when the only way to work some things out or to
notice new things about Bi-metallics is to have pieces to look at. In fact
one of the first articles I had in the Newsmail (before I was even a member)
was about the large and small "GROSSI" varieties of the Italian 1993 500
Lire KM-160 (Centennial of the Bank of Italy). Much of my researching is
based on searching the internet. This searching is seldom focused just on
Bi-metallics. I generalise the information I look for to anything on coins,
especially information as announced by tourists, new agencies and government
establishments. This information continues to prove useful (to the WBCC
Newsmails and my other numismatic persuits) so I hope to continue with this
job until there have been another 250 Newsmails - and beyond.

9. My Bi-metallic Story (2)...by Carlos Villanueva, WBCC member #189

Many years ago, when I was 20, I started to collect coins. I lived in Spain
I got married and went to Honduras. So I stopped the collection. Last year I
began to update all the coins, and I found the WBCC in Internet.

Is really nice to collect these beautiful bimetallic coins. They express
poetry, art, feelings of the country, and so many things. Each coin has a
special thing. Some countries made really pieces of art. That coin from
Australia (The present) or that from Gibraltar is a little master of art.

I like the WBCC club because you have notice of all bimetallics each week
(Friday). You can have relations with other collectors. And best of all you
don’t need to pay money to be a member. Martin and Rod are doing a huge job.
Thanks

10. My Bi-metallic Story (3) .by Michael Ayrapetov, WBCC member #8

I am collecting Bi-metallic coins for only 10 years. Now I have 460
Bi-metallic pieces in my collection: coins, patterns, EURO’s, medals,
tokens, badges, a key chain medal, and encased coins. The oldest bi-metallic
coin in my collection is the Farthing of Charles II of England,1684. I am
very interested with Bi-metallic tokens and medals struck in honor of
Russian Czar (Emperor), Peter the Great. This is because he was Armenian,
sonof Astvasatur (Bogdan) Saltanov. Polish historians know that he was
Armenian, because in Poland a sensational historical dissertation about
Peter the Greatwas issued. I currently live in Rhode Island, near
Massachusetts, where the Roger Williams Mint islocated. Roger Williams
(1603-1683) was an English-man who founded Rhode Island and Providence
Plantations in 1636. Roger Williams Mint was founded over 70 years ago, and
was first located in Providence, Rhode Island.
Thanks for reading! Spasibo Za Vnimanie !

11. My Bi-matallic Story (4) ..... Oddvar Øyan, WBCC member #142

I am WBCC member #142 and became a mamber for about two years ago. I have
read the WBCC Newsmail weekly since #90. The first I do on Saturday mornings
is to get my e-mails and the new WBCC Newsmail!

I have collected coins in 25 years now and the latest four years with a
special focus on Bi-metallics. WBCC has been the right orgainzation for me
to get information about Bi-metallics and how to get them. I am very glad
for the job Martin Peeters and the other guys are doing to collect and
spread information to us members.

In Norway we do not have any ringed bi-metallics yet. We have only silver
medals with gold inlay. So I have to include these pieeces in my collection
to get Norway to be a part of it. Until now the Royal Mint of Norway have
issued 22 "honorary medals" in sterlling silver with gold inclay.

In some months 12 countries in Europe will get euro as their new monetary
system. My wish for WBCC in the near future is to help us members outside of
the euro zone to get the new coins easiest and cheepest. Maybe one member in
each of the new Euro-countries could collect a series for the WBCC-mebmers
who wish that? Of course we have to pay for it including postage.

This were some thanks and thoughts from north of Europe. I hope WBCC will
live long and give us member bi-metallic news!

12. My Bi-metallic Story (5)...by Kari Hurskainen, WBCC member #90

Peoples are collectors , though someone can refuse that, but general all
unknowingly favour and wanting somethings. Myself coming up- and downhill
feelings to coins collect. Thinking is this any reason a whole thing and
benefit put a money fasten for the coins. Now is coming so many new
Bi-metallic coins that I don´t try collect every one. 2002 Euro coins, good
or bad , I don´t know. Then sometimes I can spend lot of time for coin file
, investigate and set new coins in place. We have very fine club and the
best is got new friend around a world. Thanks to Martin.

13. My Bi-metallic Story (6)..by Jorge Cunha, WBCC member #173

My name is Jorge Cunha and I am from Portugal, Guimarães (studding
mathematics now in Aveiro). That's funny to know how many collectors started
to be interested to collect Bi-metallic coins. However nothing special
happened with me, any way here is the registration how do I start to
collecting those that I consider like the most beautiful type of coins.
Backing to the past, I was 12 years old, local Bennidorm (Spain)...I was
swimming in the pool when I saw something on the bottom.it was 1 cent from
USA (1945, I still have it). That was the beginning of a new hobby,
collecting coins.after my return I started only to put some coins that I
found in circulation into a box, until that in 1998 I really start with my
collection after look at that small box full of coins.....And than in the
end of 1999, when I thought that Portugal have the most beautiful coins in
the world, I started to swap in the internet. How I was wrong when I started
to find great Bi-metallic coins as beautiful as the Portuguese ones...it was
the 50 Kc (from Checs Rep., together with the Portuguese Bi-metallic) that
makes me start for real trying to get all the Bi-metallic that circulates in
the world ...of course that as much we have as much we want and I started to
get also some Bi-metallic that don't circulated but are very beautiful)..It
was with my friends and the WBCC help that I became able to know and to get
"all" the world BM circulated coins..I still miss a lot but with some time I
'll get them "all"...

I said that nothing special happened, well I became recently to construct a
web-page that have also been a good help to increase my collection and with
what I learn a lot. Also since I started swapping coins that I meet a lot of
new and interesting "web"-friends..that's special for me. Regards and nice

BM hunt to all.. 14. My Bi-metallic Story (7)..by José Luis Ramírez, WBCC member #118

I collect coins since I was a child, but when I knowed the bimetallic (the
1982 500 italian liras) I understand that this coins will be my future
collection. Before I knowed the bimetallic I collect all the coins that I
obtained. After knowed the bimetallic my goal was obtain all the bimetallics
coins that I can buy.
In 1995 I see in a numismatic shop that there are too many bimetallics
around the world. Later at the end of 1998 I used Internet the first time to
obtain some information about this new bimetallic (the spanish magazine that
I buy was a great help for me. I see a url of a bimetallic club: The WBCC)
When I knowed the WBCC I see that have a lot of information about
bimetallic, I understand that I can obtain (and give) the information about
bimetallics that I need.
The next year (1999) I have the idea of make my own bimetallic page. There
are not information in spanish about bimetallic in Internet, for this reason
my webpage is in spanish http://ret001qm.eresmas.net/index.htm I began to
make my webpage in the year 2000.
Some spanish speakers members knowed the WBCC with my page and I think that
is a great help to all members of the WBCC beacause this new members
(americans members mainly) have a lot of news about bimetallics, there are
too many american countries that have issued bimmetallics in the last two
years.
I am very happy to give information to all the members of the WBCC and the
next year I will help to all members that will need the spanish Euros.

15. My Bi-metallic Story (8)..by Otto Komornik, WBCC member #103

Numismatics was always my favourite. Perhaps for the hereditary bug I am
trying to coexist with, for more then sixty five year. Back in time I
decided to enter in to the Bi-mettalic adventure, and was all for it.
Joining the WBCC club, soon I realised, it was the move in to the right
direction. All members with the same goal, ready to share and help each
other, was the perfect atmosphere in which my anemic bi-metallic collection
then, boosted into a quite impressive object today.
It was the sympathtic introduction of Martin whom I blame for my well-being
in this exclusive Bi-metallic environment. Martin many thanks to you and to
all other members I had contact with, and I still owe them some buck.

You grow with something, you start to love it. Never before could I realise
that in time, as the collection grew bigger, it influenced and substituted.
Al the well known aspects especially attributed to collectors changed in
attitude since I became a retiree and a widower. Commitment, Joy,
Expectation, Anger, Disappointment, Fire, Jealousy, are elements you deal
with, more often as a collector then as a non one. This is, what collection
makes collectors alive, worthwhile to collect.
Thanks to all collectors giving me the opportunity to share the moments of
my views and fillings. Wishing you all a successfull and economic hunting in
to the future, especially for the approaching Euros in 2002. God forbid and
beware to many specials and errors, dough this little fellows make the
collection a collection.
