What are some fast facts about foreign coins?

  • £2 United Kingdom Pound (GBP) Coin 

Did you know the edge inscription “Standing on the shoulders of giants” was taken from a letter that was written by Isaac Newton? It was meant to acknowledge how much he owed to the work of others. 

  • £1 United Kingdom Pound (GBP) Coin

To easily identify it, the £1 coin is thicker than all the other coins while the 'yellow' color allows it to stand out from the cupro-nickel 'silver' coins already in circulation. 

  • €2 European Central Bank Euro (EUR) Coin

Did you know all of the euro coins feature the 12 stars of the European flag? This image symbolizes the unity of the European Union and was designed by Mr Luc Luycx of the Royal Belgian Mint.

  • €1 European Central Bank Euro (EUR) Coin

Did you know the euro coins have a common side (obverse) and a national side (reverse)? While the common side on the front remains the same, the back can represent over 23 different countries of the EU. 

  • $2 Canadian Dollar (CAD) Coin

The $2 Canadian dollar coin is also referred to as the toonie by Canadians. It has a life span that is approximately 20 times longer than paper currency. 

  • $1 Canadian Dollar (CAD) Coin

The $1 Canadian dollar coin is also referred to as the loonie by Canadians. This nickname came from the most popular bird that exists in Canada (the loon), which is featured on the front of the coin.
