2. Bi-metallic tokens from the Netherlands.....by Jose Luis Ramirez,
There are a new set of tokens that contains 3 bimetallics. The coins are
similars to the last coins issued by Leiden with Rembrandts portraits. The
man of this new issue is Michael Ruyter. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEU-DE-RUYTER-BU-SATZ-2007-NIEDERLANDE-VLISSINGEN_W0QQitemZ200094340664
I think that the set is too expensive, maybe in the next months will be cheaper
3. Bi-metallic from The Oklahoma City Coin Club......Ron LaSpisa,
The Oklahoma City Coin Club has prepared a new medallion celebrating the
70th anniversary of its organization in 2008, and is offering this medallion
for sale to members of the WBCC Club. It is bimetallic with the ring made
of copper-nickel, and the center is brass, weighing 23.5 grams and is 39 mm
in diameter. These medallions were minted by the Great Canadian Mint
in Edmonton, Alberta.
The medallion symbolizes the multi-national membership and growth of the
club since its organization in 1938. The outer legend on the reverse
reads: 70 years and counting: 71 (Roman) : 72 (Arabic) : 73 (Sanskrit) : 74
(Chinese) : 75 (Korean) : 76 (Hebrew) : infinity. The inner native American
‘medicine wheel’, when each sector is painted in the four colors of white,
black, red, and yellow, can be viewed as a rotating wheel that when spun rapidly,
transforms into brown – the color of the earth where we hope to reside together
The medallion mintage is very limited; if you are interested in purchasing
one, send $15 which includes shipping in the U.S. via US money order to the
club address: Oklahoma City Coin Club, PO Box 20816, Oklahoma City, OK 73156,
USA. For shipping out of the US, $5 additional will be required, making
the cost US$20. Payment from outside the US will need to be made in US currency.
Orders will be honored until stock is exhausted, and if there are none left,
your payment will be returned
