6. Bi-metallic Quiz Game #886….…by Jack Hepler, USA
King Rama V also known as Chulalongkorn, was a major reformer of the governmental structure of Thailand.  Many think
of him as the “most beloved king of Thailand”.  Part of his efforts to improve his country included a trip to Europe in 1897. 
This visit was commemorated with a Bi-metallic 10 Baht coin in 1997.  But this was not his only trip to Europe. 
In which other year did Rama V visit Europe.
See this coin and others at the WBCC website:  http://wbcc-online.com

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:

For example: in Rheinland-Palatinate, the landmark is Porta Nigra located in Trier.
