Product Spotlight: Bi-Metallic Coins
Bi-metallic coins are coins which are made from two (or more) different metals, fused together. The most common arrangement for bi-metallic coins is a center disk of one metal, surrounded by a ring of a different metal. There are over 140 nations who have bi-metallic coins in circulation. Perhaps the ones familiar to the most people today are the €1 and €2 coins of the European Union.
