I have spotted two "Camel Toe" Toonies in Toronto in the last week.  They have been turned over to Toronto Police. The original news article about the Richmond Hill man arrested for having 10,000 of these toonies was updated the following day to report that these toonies were believed to be made in China (which I did not know). If that is true, I wonder how many of these may possibly be in circulation?

As I know you've already read, a hypothesis as to the quantity of these fake coins in circulation is included on my website at
