3. Bi-metallic 1 Pesos 2010 pieces from from Argentina.....by Antonio Barrena Mateo, Argentina

1 Peso conmemotarive coins 2010, Bicentenary of Argentina. The Central Bank of Argentina ordered the issuance of 300 million commemorative coins are legal tender Bi-metallic 1 Peso 2010 in five versions, each of which presents different images of Argentina:

4. Bi-metallic 2 Dollar 2010 Off-centre from Canada...by Frans Woons, Canada
I was able to buy, via eBay, a “Special Edition Uncirculated Set” issued by the Royal Canadian Mint and dated 2010. This 9-coin set contains an off-centre “toonie” (Bi-metallic $ 2 coin). I have the impression that a relatively large percentage of these sets contain an off-centre $ 2 coin. Not all off-centre coins are as extreme as this one. The set contains also three coloured 25 ¢ pieces.
