Due to a manufacturing error involving 2 Euro coins the European Central Bank (ECB) has announced a significant 2 Euro meltdown fear. 

The coins are made of two alloys, nickel brass and copper-nickel.  However, at an unidentified national mint the nickel brass was replaced by gold over several hours!  There are fears that people will melt down 2 Euro coins to obtain gold.  The ECB is appealing to people’s honesty and have offered a reward to the public for handing in gold coins;identified by their additional weight.

Without the general public’s honesty this will be catastrophic, the end of financial stability across Europe!
