Dear WBCC members and non WBCC members,

Welcome into the World of Bi-, Tri- and Tetra-metallics. I hope you enjoy reading this week's issue of the WBCC Newsmail

1. A new WBCC WBCC Martin Peeters, WBCC Focal Point
We have a new WBCC member. Let me introduce him to you
Name:  Doug Clemann (WBCC member #589), USA
Age  66
Profession  Retired, electronic communications
Hobby:  Please indicate your specialisation:  Love all Bi-metallics, wasn’t aware of Tri-metallics so excited to start 
Goal  for starters at least one Bi-metallic from each country
How did you know about the WBCC:  Wasn’t aware until just now when looking up facts about bi-metallics for a friend that the U.S.
should get with it already, join the rest of the world.  Was showing him a photo of my latest acquisition, Daniel Carr’s Bi-metallic Astronaut. 

2. Bi-metallic Euro 2018 from the Baltic Martin Peeters, The Netherlands
Referring to WBCC Newsmail 1077 item 1 about the 2 Euro 2018 from Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania contest, this week
it has unveiled the design of the Bi-metallic 2 Euro coin commemorating the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania),
denominated issued jointly in 2018, celebrating the centenary of the formation of these three states as sovereign and independent.

3. Bi-metallic 2 Pounds 2017 from Isle of Martin Peeters, The Netherlands
Here a picture of the new Bi-metallic 2 Pounds 2017 of the Isle Of Man depicting Tower of Refuge

3. Bi-metallic 1 Pound 2017 from Paul Beker, UK
It seems that all pieces of the Bi-metallic 1 Pound in circulation up to now have the date “2016"

Most of the Nickel-Brass 1 Pound coin types (starting in 1983) have the “cross crosslet” mint mark included with the incuse edge inscription.
There are a few coin types that include this mint mark on the face of the coin – including some low denomination Polish coins from a few years ago
I expect that the 2016 bi-metallic BU 1 Pound coins with the mint mark will be quite popular….. but a bit expensive
The Nickel-Brass coins in this pack in available as a single BU coin in a pack for 10 Pounds….. So 45 Pounds must be paying for the bi-metallic coin.   That is
a lot of money for what it is.  But it could still be popular.  The pack that contains just a BU bi-metallic 1 Pound of 2017 (no special mint mark) is only 10 pounds
