8. Super Quiz #33 (revised)…………by Jack Hepler, USA

Eight “Bundesländer Series” Bi-metallic 2 Euro coin designs have been issued by Germany thus far. 
Each coin features a landmark.  Which two landmarks (of the eight) are the closest to each other?
To help players this suggestion is offered:

First, name the landmarks and locations, then look at a map to see which two landmarks are the closest.
For example: in Rheinland-Palatinate, the landmark is Porta Nigra located in Trier.

Answer to Super Quiz #32

A multinational Bi-metallic 2 Euro coin of 2007 commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome;
the “birth certificate” of the European Union.  Where is the original of this document stored?

The correct answer is Rome, Italy.

The winner of Super Quiz #32 is Thierry Defaix, WBCC member #555.  There were eight players in this game.
