I am also a firm believer in the barter system. There is always someone out there willing to trade an item or services for something you have. As an example I trade some of these and get my Bookkeeping done for me.....you gotta like that!
So the gold coin you see is our infamous Looney (1 Dollar) It used to have a Loon on it..... I still haven't figured out if they call it a looney because of the bird or the astronomical stupidity of the coin itself. If that venture into lunacey wasn't enough ....after the dust settled the powers that be decided we should have a 2 dollar coin.... that would be the one with the gold in the middle. There has been talk in the past of making a 5 dollar coin, I think they are waiting a little longer on that one as the people still haven't quite settled down over the twooney. I think it is a conspiracy between the government and retailers 1 to make Canadians loose weight cause they say too many of us are obese 2 carrying around all those coins rips out the pockets of your pants and also wears out the bottom of purses and whatever other kind of crap you have to carry to have your money on your person...works out brilliantly for the banks, everybody uses their cards because it's to hard to carry money and they nail you everytime you use it. Uhh the joys of money. Well that's enough of that tirade. There are other forms of currency, I'm sure all around the world has this or something along the same lines. You get to go spend a bunch of money and then get a few cents back. I guess that's better than nothing.
The first pic is what our money used to look like from the front. I am missing a 10 dollar bill. The second pic is of course the backside.We had kind of pretty money, and a nice thing about it is you always knew what amount you were handing over without having to look at it very hard. Well things change and quite frequently not for the better.
Well that's it for me. Hope you all have a wonderful day ....or tomorrow depending on where you are.
