Coin: Two Cents 1967 (no date, Bahamas mule)
Description

Mule with 5 Cents from the Bahama Islands. Obverse from the Bahamas, reverse from New Zealand.

This mule is listed under New Zealand everywhere because all these coins were found in New Zealand shortly after release, and were apparently minted at the Royal Mint as part of the regular New Zealand coinage of the year, then shipped there accordingly.
