3. Bi-metallic medal from Bolivia....by Antonio Barrena Mateo, Spain
At first, they attempted two coins minted high court, business transactions, but that could not be explained by several arguments at the time the Central Bank of Bolivia.
The Bicentennial coin will have a dimension very similar to that of 2 bolivianos; polyhedron and bi-metal with an alloy of various metals. On one side is a printed reproduction of the tables are in the Freedom House, "The People in Arms." In this sense, the name of the Universidad San Francisco Xavier, Felipe Medina, recalled that six years ago presented the proposal to open a university office in charge of the Bicentennial Gestair twenty projects. In this first initiative, due to the lack of attention from the authorities, in the end only came to form three projects: the marking of historic sites and the issuance of commemorative coins and stamps of the Bicentennial. "Last year I made initial contact with Mrs Iris Gutiérrez MAS and from there, led the negotiations with various entities to realize almost all projects," he said.
He also stressed that the designs for the stamps and the coins were produced in the Directorate of Publications of the University.
Medina said that Deputy Gutierrez consensus was defined, to file the currency on May 20, but still awaiting the official authorities of the BCB. Finally, he indicated that he will meet with authorities of the Bank to define the final adoption of the currency and the marketing and distribution arrangements. "I thank Deputy Gutiérrez by its management and should be considered that this was long ago and the idea is that people can have something tangible," he concluded.
