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. Bi-metallic 2 Euro 2018 from Austria…….……by Pabitra Saha, UK
The theme for the new Bi-metallic 2 Euro 2018 from Austria is the centenary anniversary of the proclamation of the Austrian Republic,
which took place during the last weeks of fighting of the First World War. The collapse of the Hapsburg Empire, and the dynasty who
ruled Austria-Hungary since 1276, was imminent with the conclusion of the hostilities in 1918.

The Bi-metallic 2 Euro 2018 is designed by Helmut Andexlinger and Herbert Wähner and features the statue of Pallas Athena, which
stands proudly in front of the parliament building in Vienna. The Greek goddess of wisdom watches over the country and by looking up
to her, Austrian citizens honour the spirit in which the Republic was founded upon. The design of the reverse side is that seen on the
standard Euro-zone circulation coin of this denomination.
