BERLIN - German shops are running out of change with the nation's central bank, the Bundesbank, warning that supplies of coins in the nation are low.

Some retailers have already been forced to consider importing coins from other countries in a bid to keep their cash registers full of change.

Part of the problem appears to have been caused by German consumers tending to use notes rather than coins when they pay for goods.

Manufacturing the coins has also been hit by limited supplies of the metals used to make the coins.
