7. The WBCC Bi-metallic Quiz Game #312 ... by Jack Hepler, USA

Savage Island is one of world's largest coral islands. Its remoteness, as well as cultural and linguistic differences between its Polynesian inhabitants and those of the rest of the island group have caused it to be separately administered. The population of the island is in decline (from a peak of 5,200 in 1966 to 2,100 in 2000) with substantial emigration to New Zealand. In 2000, it issued a Bi-metallic Five Dollar coin commemorating the Queen Mother's 100th birthday. The image is unusual because it is the 1923 engagement portrait of the Queen Mother. What is the official name of this country?
a. Bermuda
b. Cook Island
c. Niue
d. Tuvalu
Please send your answer to me: Jack Hepler.
Note: See this coin and many others by visiting the WBCC website.
