2010 WORLD CUP COMMEMORATIVE COINS
The E-Sylum (6/20/2010)
The world is gaga over the World Cup games, even here in the U.S., where I've heard of one person who arranged two weeks of vacation so he could watch all of the matches he wanted without interference from work. So when ultra-modern numismatist P.K. Saha sent this image of a new World Cup Commemorative Dollar from New Zealand, I thought I'd publish it. There must be dozens of such coins from around the world. I notice that this one is dated 2009. Are funds from sales of these commemorative used to help finance the county's team?
