Ever since I was a kid and the toonie came out, the first question on my mind was, when is the $5 coin coming out?
Well it might be awhile before we see that one, but in the meantime the Royal Canadian Mint did create a $3 coin.
First the loonie, then the toonie, and now the threenie.
The coin was minted to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, it's made of 99.99% pure silver and it is by far the most stereotypical Canadian coin ever created.
Seriously, it has hockey sticks, a puck, snowflakes, a polar bear, an inukshuk, Parliament Hill, the Canadian flag, maple syrup, a lighthouse, lobster traps, a toboggan, a goose, a canoe, a beaver, a moose, a black spruce tree, salmon, wheat, cowboy boot, and mountains.
The coin is available in limited quantities for only $19.95.
