    Two looneys? I’m fairly certain that it is polar bear on the back of the Canadian $2 coin. Wish that they would bring back bills though, would be easier on my pockets.

    It is called a toonie because when they brought it out they couldn’t think of a name to call it so it kind of just ended up as a toonie or townie.

    Keep digging that hole, Darby. They prefer to be called “women”, not girls.

    There was a joke for a while that the $2 coin should have been called a Moonie because it has the Queen on the front, and a bear behind.

    The Loonie has a loon on it. The Toonie has a bear, not two loons.

    We called it a loonie originally kind of as a joke, but the name stuck, and my understanding is the Royal Canadian Mint has since trademarked the name. Mind you, given that Rob’s friends appear to be moving to Quebec (a guess, given all the French jokes), they Satch should be calling it a huard. It is only a loonie in English speaking Canada.

    Reminds me of a lesser-known Abbott and Costello routine with numbers, 7×13=28:.In the first part, Costello explains his system of dividing 7 into 28. 7 into 2 won’t go, so 7 into 8 goes once. He writes the 7 down under the 8 and brings down the 2. Then 7 into 21 goes 3. At this point, Abbott writes down 13 with a 7 under it. 7×3 is 21, says Costello, who then writes down 7×1 (7) under the 1; adding, he once again gets 28. Exasperated, Abbott writes down seven 13’s on the board, and begins counting the right column—three, six, nine,twelve,fifteen,eighteen, twenty-one, whereupon Costello continues the count, in the left column, twenty-two,twenty-three,twenty-four, twenty-five, twenty-six, twenty-seven, twenty-eight.

    I’d never heard of Moony or loony bin before, but we in western Canada are often left out of the loop.-—-Our $1 coin was supposed to originally have a maple leaf, but the plates got stolen on the way to the mint. The loon image was second choice. We called it a loony as an insult.-—When the $2 coin came out it was called either a dubloon or twoony. Twoony stuck because it rhymed with loony.-Thank God we aren’t getting the $5 coin.

    I believe this is the first time I have seen things spelt looney and tooney. Loon is the bird on $1 coin. Loonie. If you heard the call of the loon – loonie would make sense.

    As for the toonie… We did try out bear and polar but toonie for $2 is what it ended.

    Now can we get rid of the plastic money? Please? It just does not fold right.
