Canada 2-DOLLARS (KM270)

Polar Bear

The Polar Bear is the largest land carnivore and resides at the top of the food chain in the Arctic. It is equally at home hunting in the snow, or the frigid waters.

Canada's 2-dollar coin first appeared in 1996. Unlike the introduction of the 1-dollar coin, nobody seemed to mind that the 2-dollar bill was going away. Canadians immediately nicknamed it the 'twoonie', proving that a meaningful nickname is not an absolute necessity.
