7. Bi-metallic Quiz Game #907….…by Jack Hepler, USA

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, also known as APEC held a Summit meeting in Thailand in 2003.  This event
 was recognized with a Bi-metallic 10 Baht commemorative coin.  Pacific Rim member economies seek to promote
free trade and economic cooperation throughout the Asia-Pacific region. It was established in 1989 in response to the
growing interdependence of Asia-Pacific economies and the advent of regional trade blocs in other parts of the world. 
Representatives are primarily from nations bordering on the Pacific Ocean.
 How many economic entities (countries) are listed in APEC?

8. Super Quiz #34…………by Jack Hepler, USA

Austria has issued a series of Bi-metallic 25 Euro coins with a core of Niobium. 
Niobium metal exhibits a rather novel characteristic that allows oxidation in predictable colors. 
Austria has utilized this characteristic to produce colored Euro coins since 2003.
There have been three issues using the same color.  Name the color and the years of issue.

Answer to Super Quiz #33

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?

The two closest landmarks are the Holston Gate in Lubeck, Scheswig-Holstein and the Schweriner Schloss in Mecklenburg-Volpommern. 
They are located only about 60 km from each other.

There were five players in this game.
