Spare Change

Shown above are a Canadian quarter, penny, nickle, "loonie" ($1 coin named after the Loon on it), and "twonie" (which is just badly nicknamed).   I know the DOF's a bit narrow but the intention was to focus on the coin edges. I'm not a great fan 'technically' speaking of this shot but I needed something put put up ;)   Hence the Yellow ShMood ;)

Interesting....you've got the Queen on your currency too.
Why of course we do!? She's the Queen of Canada also. Our entire political system is based on the Westminster Parliamentary System which we inherited from our British colonial past. Unlike the Americans we ~asked~ for control of our own affairs and were granted it wink To this day the person occupying the throne in Great Britain is also the Queen (or King) of Canada.

Many right wing “Canadians” (who are not Canadians in my mind if they believe this!) have proposed replacing the monarchy with a republican form of government. But for now, the queen remains on our coins as she should.
