Canadian dollar banknotes and coins

One Canadian dollar ($) can be subdivided into 100 cents (¢).

There are five denominations of Canadian dollar banknotes in circulation: $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100; and five coin denominations: 5¢ (nickel), 10¢ (dime), 25¢ (quarter), $1 and $2.

You might hear Canadians refer to their dollar coins as 'loonies' and 'toonies'. In 1987, a $1 coin was released that featured an image of a common loon (a water bird) on its reverse which led the coins being colloquially referred as 'loonies' by locals. In 1996, a new $2 coin was introduced which quickly become known as a 'toonie' - a combination of 'two' and 'loonie'.
