Waterloo II

This year Britain has been celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, when the Duke of Wellington gave Napoleon Bonaparte a trouncing. As Waterloo is in what is now Belgium, the Belgians came up with this design for a 2 euro coin to commemorate the battle, showing the triumphant British lion on Lion Hill. But the French threw a wobbly and the design has been rejected (CLICK). It seems the French are still miffed about their defeat at Waterloo.
