Karin received something that has not been seen in daily transactions for some time in Canada. She had a couple of French tourists come into her store and paid for their purchase with the out of service Canadian Dollar Bill. Knowing that I like to collect currency she quickly traded the dollars for Loonies. She was able to get two dollars while a friend bought one of the others.
This brings me to another blurb on currencies. There are some neat coins that are in circulation now. A number of the quarters that have been produced by the Royal Canadian Mint have been made with colours in them. Beginning with the Poppy quarter last year they have gone on to make many other coloured coins. I have even seen the Ottawa Senators imortalized in coin.
