3. Bi-metallic KwonO Hyouk, Korea-North
A collector informed me that he has French 10 franc is suspected of counterfeit coin.
The issue date of the coin is 1993. But, I know that it had never been issued at that year.
Ring shows normal, but center is rough and rude. It seems that ring is original and center was counterfeited later.
--Remark WBCC Focal Point: Indeed many counterfeit Bi-metallic 10 Franc are made in the past.
Still the French Mint did made the Bi-metallic 10 Franc 1993 are only in BU (medal alignment, 20.000 pieces) and BE (coin Alignment and plainedge, 10.000 pieces) sets.
