The Loonie

In 1987 a new one dollar coin replaced the one dollar bill in Canada. Introduced as a cost saving measure, the new coin was instantly nicknamed the "loonie" thanks to the lovely loon design created by well-known wildlife artist Robert-Ralph Carmichael, featuring a profile portrait of a common loon floating on a still lake with a small island populated by conifers in the background. The name caught on and Canada gained a new word at the same time as Canadians began using the new coin every day. The circulation loonie one dollar coin is made of aureate (steel plated with bronze). However, this special edition Loonie is minted in the purest silver on the planet; it's a true silver dollar!
