The trouble lies with the new two-cent coins Hie government ordered coined by the British Mint. First, at least 58,000 of the new coins turned out to have teen stamped "Bahama Islands." The British Mint had just sent along its apologies and an offer to pay for replacing the bad two-pennies when slot machine and telephone officials complained. They reported thousands of the new coins are too fat to fit in their machine slots. New Zealand officials were dispatching this latest fault back to Britain when today coin users reported more woe.
