2. Bi-metallic from Georgia?...... by Michael Ayrapetov, USA

In begining of April 2003 (WBCC Newsmail 350, item 2) I had information from my friend, that on April 9 2003 Georgia will issue new Bi-metallic coin in commemoration of 12th Anniversary of the Georgian Independence. I sent message to National Bank of Georgia, but did not received the answer. I received message from WBCC member Wolfgang Schuster, that he have information from Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, that this coin was not issued. I think that it may be a Pattern coin or this coin was planned, but did not issued.
