Canada’s $1 coin, affectionately known as the “loonie,” because of the loon on the tails side. Drawn in ballpoint pen.
I want it!
I like the name. Great way to refer to money!

Great idea for a post. I have a Canadian Dollar, given to me in 1968 as a “good luck” piece. It looks entirely different from the modern versions.http://www.flickr.com/photos/28475994@N00/3203992665/
My scan shows the coin compared with the UK 50p piece.
Funny that you should mention the old Canadian dollar coin. I just learned the other day that the loonie was supposed to be the same canoe/fur trader image, but had to be changed because the mint’s dies were stolen:
Thanks for the link, Stephen. Very interesting. Kndest regards, Bob.
