Dear WBCC members and non WBCC members,

1. Bi-metallic from Antonio Barrena Mateo, Spain
This third week of a good new year, I am showing items of both new and old things that include medal, coins and statues as well as my opium weight collection. For this sale, this lot will start at $1.49. I hope you all can find the things you are looking for and at the prices you can afford. I have dropped my prices as low as I can go for the authentic items I offer. This BU (brilliant Uncirculated) coin is dated the 2nd to 14th of October, 2004, but actually it was released for circulation just last year makling it the latest 10 baht Bi-metallic coin in the series. It has the Queen's head on one side and the CITES symbol ans letters on the back, the meeting held to help preserve our Mother Earth's treasures of nature.
