Dear WBCC members and non WBCC members,
Welcome into the World Of Bi-metallics. I really hope you enjoy reading the WBCC Newsmail this week.

1. Bi-metallic for Macedonia - hopefully Bi-metallic.....by Paul Baker, UK
A recent report at:
http://www.focus-fen.net/index.php?id=n100769
says that Macedonia is soon to have new circulation coins of 10 Denars and of 50 Denars. There are about 45 Denars to a U.S. Dollar. Maybe the 50 Denars coin will be Bi-metallic. More new issues to look out for.
 
2. Bi-metallic 100 Pesos from Mexico...by Martin Peeters, Netherlands
Here the new circulating commemorative Bi-metallic 100 Pesos from Mexico:
"Mexican States collection 2: Estado de Mexico". The coin depicts the Teotihuacan Sun Pyramid.

3. Bi-metallic US token....by Cliff Anderson, USA
This item appears to be quite old.
The Baltimore Fair Grounds sounds like a racetrack.  But an internet search indicates that it is now an amusement park.
Does any WBCC member recognize this item and can furthe describe its origin?
 
4. Bi-metallic Carwash token from Poland...by Wladek Gebczyk, Poland
Here is a picture of a Bi-metallic token from Poland: Myjnia Bezdotykowa - Carwash

5. Bi-metallic Rec.Collecting.coins token...by Kyle Mutcher, Canada
Just recently I issued a set of tokens for the coin collecting newsgroup rec.collecting.coins. This set of tokens consists of a 4.5g sterling silver one spark token and a bimetallic "one stick" token. The silver token obverse features a western style dragon sitting atop the globe and the reverse has the theme "Community" and has a small village as the main design with the denomination of "ONE SPARK" below. The Bimetallic token is a copper ring with a brass center, it features a dragon clutching the globe with the legend "REC.COLLECTING.COINS" along the right side of the obverse with the issue date "2006" to the inside of the legend. The reverse features the legend "MONETA AVGVSTI" "1 STICK". The design on the reverse shows Moneta, the godess of money, with a balance in her left hand and a stick raised in her right hand standing behind a dead horse. This is symbolic of the thorough discussion of contriversial coin related topics that are frequently revived in the news group <rec.collecting.coins>. The dies for these tokens were made by hand and the tokens were struck with a 12 pound sledge hammer.
