3. Tri-metallic 2003 from Gibraltar ..by Frans Woons, Canada
To commemorate this Century of Flight, the Gibraltar Government has
approved the release of an outstanding Tri-metallic coin which features the
military history of aviation over the last 100 years and wherever possible depicts
aircraft that have seen service in Gibraltar. This superb Tri-metallic
crown comprises three rings: one of platinum, one of gold and one of silver with
each metal showing aircraft of a particular time in aviation history. The
outer ring, which is silver, bears aircraft of the World War I period. The
middle ring, which is gold, features the aircraft of the World War II
period and the centre ring, which is made of platinum, brings us to the present
day and illustrates the Stealth Bomber which is capable of delivery of both
conventional and nuclear munitions and is able to penetrate the enemy's
most sophisticated defences. This truly wonderful Tri-metallic coin has an
issue limit of just 999!

5. The WBCC Bi-metallic Quiz Game #369...by Jack Hepler, USA
The llama is an animal appearing on Bi-metallic coins of two
South American countries. The llama is a very useful pack
animal but also very stubborn. If it feels its pack is too
heavy, or if it thinks it has worked hard enough, it will lie
down, with its front legs under it, and refuse to move.
When the llama is angry or under attack, it spits bad-smelling
saliva into its enemy's face. Which country introduced a
Bi-metallic coin in 1994 with the picture of a llama?
