Spelling is important after all!

Oh dear. The general manager of the Chilean mint, Gregorio Iniguez, along with several other employees, has just been dismissed after thousands of coins were issued that misspelled the name of the country. Instead of C-H-I-L-E, the coins had C-H-I-I-E stamped on them.


If you type in Chiie, even Google asks if you really mean Chile? It’s always worth a proof-read.
