5. Bi-metallic Quiz Game #857….…by Jack Hepler, USA
Thailand has produced over 60 different designs of the Bi-metallic 10 Baht coin.  For the next issues of the Quiz Game, I will be crafting questions about these coins.

This Thailand governmental office is in charge of trade, prices of important agricultural goods, consumer protection, entrepreneurship, insurance, intellectual property protection, and exports.  It was founded in 1892 by King Rama V and was honored on a Bi-metallic coin in BE 2543.  What is the name of this Cabinet level Ministry? See this coin and others at the WBCC website:  http://wbcc-online.com Please send your answer to: heplerj@juno.com 

WBCC Quiz Game Prize
A Bi-metallic prize will be awarded for the correct answer. If more than one member gets the correct answer, a random drawing will be conducted to select a winner.

Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #856

The Bi-metallic 10 Baht issue of Thailand was issued for circulation.  On the reverse of the first issue is the image of The Temple of the Dawn.  What is imbedded in the walls of this temple that produces the appearance of precious stones?
The answer to Quiz Question #856 is shells, shards of broken pottery and mirrors.

The Quiz Game #855 prize winner was Leandro Del Vecchio, WBCC member #336.  There were five players.

6. Super Quiz #30…………by Jack Hepler, USA
