And notice the value of those two coins. Yep. That says $25 Canadian Dollars.
They even did a Loonie in colour, eh?
But while I was here this week, they released the world's first coin to commemorate the Paralympics. So I was able to pick up a few. Don't mind my fingers.
There wasn't much out on the web, so here's an excerpt for those who are interested.
