Good post Seth - this is funny!

Looking at the front of the coin (token?) in the police photo, I see it uses a Z instead of a 2.  So does this make it a "Zoonie"? :D

Here is a fun fact: when the Bank of Canada was creating the Bird Series of bank notes; it actually began as a Canadian wildlife series with moose etc.  An early essay for the $2 bank note featured a Walrus!

Was this Zoonie design intentional or a coincidence?

Cheers,
JBN
