1997 circulation issues were recalled in January 1998 because a slight variation in the metal composition resulted in many parking, gaming and vending machines rejecting them. This affected the coins' electrical conductivity, which is used as an authenticity test by many of these machines. It is unknown how many 1997 $2 coins remain in circulation.
