Where Did The Polar Bear Go?!?

I came home from my errands today with a pocketful of loonies and toonies. Upon closer observations I was shocked to find the polar bear was missing from the tails side of one of my toonies. Instead, I found on the flip side, what appears to be Inuit art. Intrigued, I decided to investigate (click here for the wikipedia pages on the loonie and toonie).

My toonie is a limited edition coin that was issued in 1999. It features an Inuit drummer and was created to commemorate the founding of Nunavut.

This one is a definitely a keeper!! I won't be exchanging it for any Tim Horton donuts or Aero bars!
