1. Bi-metallic 2 Dollar 1996 Off-centre from Canada...by Frans Woons, Canada
Today I received in the mail another Bi-metallic off-centre toonie I had bought on eBay. This coin shows a large, moon-shaped, gap between ring and plug. I estimate the width of the gap (at its widest point) to be about 1.3 mm. Attached you will find images of this coin: obverse, reverse, and a “see through” image.
