King Chuck makes it onto a Canadian coin


Despite the size of the new coin, Canadians still find it more convenient than the old method, which was to pay with pelts.

The worst part of the pelt system was making change. The Toronto subway used to cost two beavers, and I used to hand them a sable and enjoy their confusion.

I do the same sort of thing with pirates. When their inns sell grog for a piece of eight, I love to slip them two pieces of seven and watch the fun.
