Welcome to blogging through the Alphabet with Amanda and myself. This week we are working through the letter L. I hope you will hop right on in. :) Join us yes?
Today I want to talk to you about Loonies and Toonies... our lovely way to spend money! :)
This past weekend I went to the states for a wedding. It was fun. I had a chance to visit with an old college friend and see her children all grown up. It was interesting trying to work with American dollars...all green and all bills (except the small change).
Did you know that in Canada we have bills .. coloured according to denomination...and then my favourite.. the Loonie and the Toonie! :)
Why are they my favourite you ask?
Well.... Today I find it marvellous to have a bill for $10 and I'm thinking to me-self ACK I don't want to break my $20...and low and behold in my change I find a lovely $10 in coins...it's like a birthday present you know? When you think you've only got small change and find all those dollars hiding in there! :) It's a marvellous thing. :)
Well...it's got that fine looking bird on it's head. The well you know...the toonie is called such because well.. bearie would be STUPID (even if it has a bear on the head) and well...Toonie rhymes! :) And we are a common sense type of people eh?
Why do we use coins for the $1 and $2?
Well.. it saves the country money as coins don't wear out as quickly as dollar bills do.
We've even lost our penny as it costs MORE to make the penny than what it's worth.
Tell me then...what do you like about the money of YOUR country? (other than the making and spending of it mind). :)
