Oh Canada!

leave a comment »

I thought I would write a little piece on Canada.  Our neighbor to the north, who has always been a step behind the good old USA, but at the moment their dollar buys just what our’s does.  Enjoy it while it lasts, but I want to comment on coins here.  Growing up in Northern Ohio, my family used to go to Canada every summer.  I certainly enjoyed myself up there.  The great fishing, forests, let alone the ground bees nest I stepped on and got 26 bee stings.  So back to the point, their coins have always had a wilderness appeal and I like them.  Praising the wonderful wildlife to the ever so popular maple leaf.
