11. WBCC Super Quiz Jack Hepler, USA

At least 39 African countries have issued Bi-metallic coins. Some are plentiful but some are very hard to find. There are commemoratives, pattern pieces and coins issued for circulation. Several countries have issued a Bi-metallic coin with the value of 10. Which of these African countries is/are landlocked?

Answer to WBCC June Super Quiz #16
When the Euro coins were launched in 2002, optional edge lettering was authorized. Most countries incorporated a series of designs for the edges including stars, country names, ornaments or value. Which country created Bi-metallic edge designs that were NOT country name, ornaments, value or stars? What was the inscription on the Bi-metallic 2 Euro of that country and what does it say in English?

The correct answer is in German: "EINIGKEIT UND RECHT UND FREIHEIT".
The June Super Quiz winner will be announced next week.
