Canada 1 & 2 dollars 2012 - New material and security features

The 1 & 2 dollar circulation types will see important and nice design changes this year. They will bear laser marks of maple leaves. Also, instead of traditional alloys, Canada's new circulation coins are manufactured using the same Multi-Ply Plated Steel technology found in our current 25 cent, 10 cent, 5 cent and 1 cent circulation coins. This patented process covers a steel core with alternating layers of metals such as copper, nickel and brass. The resulting coins are more economical to produce, durable and secure.
