Canada has the Loonie and the Toonie, we've got two years to come up with a name for this coin. It'll apparently be in circulation by 2017

I miss Canadian currency since I moved to US. Canada has colorful currency and they keep on changing.

US currency is same boring for at-least half a century.

06/09/2015 ---- Put on Supervisor review (1 week or 42 day wait start) - Police certificate missing. I was avoiding it till I go to Canada for interview

06/22/2015 ---- Talked to supervisor, she said since it is available from Canada through agencies even though they charge a lot, it is a must to obtain it. NVC review won't complete without it.

Note that my case is employment based, and since government already done thorough security checking on me in the past with my employment visa and NEXUS card, I think that clears my security faster than spousal cases.

Really!? I knew they were talking about it but this is the first that I saw the 5 dollar coin. I don't know, I prefer the bills since it's not as heavy and I have too many nickels and dimes for my liking.

I am like you, I miss having colorful money. I have to double check to make sure I am giving the right bill when I shop with cash.

I could live with a "Moonie", but I do agree that as we are getting rid of bills, it will be increasingly difficult to find pants with large enough (reinforced) pockets to carry Canadian coinage, let alone keeping said pants at the appropriate place on the body (we are having difficulty enough with our young men as it is...lol!). The change purse industry, however, will love us!

From what I can tell this is an internet hoax, Thank god, because I'm not a pirate and don't have a treasure chest for all these stupid coins that weigh down my pants.
