NEW ZEALAND ERROR SPOTTED IN 'MODERN WORLD COINS' 14TH EDITION

Martin Purdy of New Zealand writes: "I've just spotted an
error in Appendix C to the 14th edition of the Yeoman/Friedberg
catalogue of Modern World Coins ("Mints, Central Banks and
Agencies").

"Under New Zealand they have listed the 'New Zealand Mint'
which, as has previously been discussed on the E-Sylum, is
a private entity and not this country's national mint, although
one could easily be misled by the name.  The correct issuing
authority for current New Zealand collector issues is:

New Zealand Post
Collectables and Solutions Centre
Private Bag 3001
Wanganui 4540

"I hope they are able to correct this for the 15th edition."

[I forwarded Martin's note to Dennis Tucker of Whitman
Publishing, who writes: "Thanks to Martin Purdy for catching
the wrong listing of the 'New Zealand Mint' in the appendix
of MWC. This will be corrected in the 15th edition." -Editor]
