1. Bi-metallic from Malta...by Jose Luis Ramirez Monleon, Spain

Reading the news on the spanish numismatic forum I have seen this coin. Maybe a fantasy coin, but look so real. Maybe the outer part is from 2 german euros and the inner from a real coin from Malta. Link to the image. Link to the main webpage. The problem is that the webpage is in german language and I don't understand german. Please if you understand some german please say to all WBCC members the meaning of this coin.
