 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.

Bi-metallic Quiz question #873
Thailand’s Bi-metallic 10 Baht coins sometimes commemorate international events.  In 2002, what international even was commemorated by
a Thai coin?

Answer:  20th World Scout Jamboree.  One listing shows this coin as being issued in 2003.  Perhaps I will list the date shown on the coin
since the date of issue when compared with the CE calendar is frequently in question.  Of course, some may have difficulty reading Thai
numbers so I may show both numbers.

The Quiz Game #872 prize winner was Max Aiello, WBCC member #73.  There were ten players.
