1. Bi-metallics 2 Euro 2013 Martin Peeters, The Netherlands
When you look in:
one can read about a false Bi-metallic 2 Euro 2013:
When someone intends to counterfeit 2-euro coins, with the intention of paying them, the most logical is that mimics a coin of which are in circulation.

The amazing thing about the currency of which I will speak, is the author or authors have even designed a new currency and given name,
"Castles of Europe", as if it belonged to a series
