Canada's All-New Loonie And Toonie
The coolest coins the country has ever had.
To celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, The Royal Canadian Mint asked Canadians to designs a new series of commemorative coins called: My Canada, My Inspiration.
Unlike the new, this is not a collectible you have to purchase.
The coins will be circulated all year long, so you just have to check your pocket change every once in awhile.
The new collection depicts some of Canada's most striking sights and it is means to be "pocket change as diverse as our country."
Here are the coins you can expect to see this year.
