The 2-dollar coin was first introduced on February 19, 1996, to replace the 2-dollar bill. The 'Toonie' has a life span approximately 20 times longer than paper currency and is manufactured using a distinctive bi-metallic coin locking mechanism patented by the Royal Canadian Mint.


Design:

The 2-dollar coin, or 'Toonie', as Canadians have named it, is a bimetallic coin with aluminum-bronze centre featuring an adult polar bear on an early summer ice floe designed by wildlife and landscape artist Brent Townsend. The gold-coloured centre is set within a nickel outer ring. When introduced in 1996, the two-dollar circulation coin depicts the crowned portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Canadian artist Dora de Pedery-Hunt.
