Geez, I live about 5 miles away from the Mint on Sussex and I didn't even know about these coins.
We sure do love to spend money and resources on currency. lol

We have the coolest money!

When I first moved to Texas I was always checking and double checking the bills I pulled out of my wallet. That is what happens when you are used to colorful bills.

I agree, it does make it easy to identify a five. ten or twenty bill.
Australia has their currency (bills) very close to ours.

I love y'alls currency. Beautiful.
Yes we dont want to round up:[.
I think about self serve gas pumps that arent prepay...we have many up here like that.
I wish to pump $20. It goes so swiftly that it wont stop exactly at $20, goes to $20.02. How many millions of people do that, daily? That certainly seems as though it would add up.
I know that has nothing to do with your post...just got me thinking about stray cents.

I hear ya Carla. When I came home it was actually weird to get used to rounding off. Signs still say 9.95 or 2.29...and we all know it ain't.

My daughter is in Toronto studying. I've asked for one of these for Christmas. She said she was unaware of them, agreed that it's cool and will try to find some.

The Canadian Mint website has them now...and can often be purchase at Canada Post outlets.

Considering the currency exchange, you might want to order some yourself.

My oldest daughter spent a year in Toronto...she loved it!

I wasn't able to find on Canadian Post, but I did check out Royal Canadian Mint and ordered one for Mrs. Budwick. It looks a little different than the one you posted. For starters, the one I ordered is a $10 coin, solid silver. Obviously not intended for circulation.

You guys have LOTS of cool looking coins. This one WAS at the Canadian Post - now that is just cool as hell!
