    I can have this meaning, but in this context, it does not. Here are the definitions of 'issue' from an online dictionary.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/issue?s=t

    The sentence here is

    "There will be no taxes in Forwick, he says, and his state will soon issue its own currency."

    In this sentence, 'issue' corresponds best to definition 4. Definitions 1, 2, and 3 are also appropriate here

    Yes, according to "The Synonym Finder" (New York, 1986), 'issue' as a noun is a synonym of 'problem.'
    As a verb, 'issue' is a synonym of 'distribute' or 'dispense,' which is the meaning it has in this lesson.
