Wellington (Reuter) - A New Zealand bank gave money to a 13-year-old boy in exchange for 10,000 Japanese yen in Monopoly money.

Lance Aukett found a 10,000- yen note while he was cleaning his bedroom. Unsure of its value, he took it to the National Bank of New Zealand, which accepted it and gave him NZdollars 151 ( pounds 54), which he spent. The bank first tried to retrieve the money but then wrote off the loss.
