Currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollar. There are currently five coins in circulation – nickel (5¢), dime (10¢), quarter (25¢), 'loonie' ($1 ) and 'toonie' ($2). The toonie has 2 colours--a silver rim around a gold-coloured centre, while the slightly smaller loonie is all gold-coloured. There is no longer a penny coin (1¢), so amounts are rounded up or down to the closest 5¢. Five bill denominations ($5, $10, $20, $50, $100) are all in different colours and the latest issues feature the Queen or former Prime Ministers on the face, and Canadian cultural and historical icons on the reverse.
