Here are images of two more types of replica coins; neither mention BP.

The first is from a Spanish set.

Re #10 the Spanish set came with Ortiz biscuits according to another forum ;D

So the complete title is written on the back of my first piece.

In fact it even says: Coleccion "Ortiz" I just cannot read Spanish.

A nice piece that even looks antique. I like the fact they always bear the WRL counter-mark.


We should have separated the WRL pieces many moons ago its a little difficult now.

I was meaning sorting this thread as there are so many references and images of WRL coins interspersed throughout here with the VERCINGETORIX items - originally the "Collection BP".

A thorough mess!  ::)

edit   ...but now sorted!
