Description

2005 First Day Cover Loon Coin

Introduced as a cost-saving measure in 1987, the new coin was nicknamed the "loonie" by Canadians, thanks to the lovely loon design created by well-known wildlife artist, Robert-Ralph Carmichael. The name caught on and Canada gained a new word at the same time as Canadians began using the new coin every day. The one-dollar coin is made of aureate bronze plated on nickel. This coin is housed in a colourful illustrated folder.
