With a new year, a new WBCC Bi-metallic project, coordinated by Martin Peeters. Martin has acquired Bi-metallic coin blanks (copper ring/nickel center, currently used by the Dutch Mint), and can have each engraved as shown in the image. The engraving will be the WBCC member's name and member number, or the member's initials and member number. The cost for 1 blank is about US1$, engraving each letter is US50¢ each. The cost for the example shown would be about US1$ + (25 x US50¢) = US13.50$. The cost for two initials and the member number would be US8$. Postage costs is additional. Email all orders and/or enquires to Martin Peeters, Netherlands, Focal Point of the WBCC.
