A set that contains a bi-metallic coin possible unknown to you.
This 1997 Austrian set with coins of strange face values contains a bi-metallic € 250 piece with the following specifications: plug .9999 gold with a
weight of 13 g ring .999 silver with a weight of 25 g the diameter of this coin is 40 mm mintage: 1000 pieces I’ve isolated (unfortunately rather poor) images of both sides of the bi-metallic coin. P.S. I’m also very interested in the € 70 palladium coin
