BANK OF ISRAEL RETURNS FAULTY SHEKELS TO DUTCH MINT

YnetNews.com published a report on March 22 that "The Bank of
Israel suspended an order of shekel coins from the Royal Dutch
Mint until it becomes clear how millions of faulty 1 shekel coins
arrived in Israel.

About a year ago it was discovered that 40 percent of a delivery
of 9.5 million 1 shekel coins manufactured in Holland are faulty.
At the coins department they were amazed, refused to accept the
delivery and returned it to Holland where faulty and fine coins
were separated."
