The Beloved Bi-Metallic Polar Bear Toonie
Canada_Beloved_Polar_Bear_$2_Toonie_Twonie_Twoonie_Bi-Metallic_CoinThe Canadian two dollar coin, commonly referred to as the "toonie" or "twonie", was introduced on February 19, 1996 by Public Works minister Diane Marleau. The toonie is a bi-metallic coin sporting an scene of a large, adult polar bear standing on an ice floe, gazing out over the early summer Arctic landscape, by artist Brent Townsend. The other side, like all other current Canadian circulation coins, has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. It has the legend ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA in a different typeface from any other Canadian circulation coin. It is also the only such coin to consistently bear its date of issue on the Queen side.

The name "toonie" became so widely accepted that in 2006 the Royal Canadian Mint secured the rights to it! A competition to name the polar bear resulted in the name "Churchill", a reference both to Winston Churchill and to the common polar bear sightings near Churchill, Manitoba.

The coin is manufactured using a patented and distinctive bi-metallic coin locking mechanism. The coins are estimated to last at least 20 years in circulation. The discontinued two-dollar bank note was less expensive to manufacture, but on average each bill lasted only one year.
