Looks like the top of a beer can. Them crazy Canucks.
2004-08-01 03:35:33 AM  
At least we know who to blame.
2004-08-01 04:51:13 AM  
So...does he get, like, a lifetime supply of those, or what?
2004-08-01 08:08:51 AM  
Wow. It must be deja vu day....
2004-08-01 08:54:16 AM  
I think the judges mistakenly thought they were picking a winner for a new line of "pogs". This quarter suck-diddly-ucks!
2004-08-01 09:43:16 AM  
Looks kind of like Bullwinkle drawn by a kid with a couple extra chromosomes.

Oh, he's Canadian, whatever.
2004-08-01 09:43:43 AM  
Hey Rocky, watch me pull some currency out of my a$$.
2004-08-01 09:44:07 AM  
Is this another fake story? That was the best they could come up with?
2004-08-01 09:45:35 AM  

/no offense
2004-08-01 09:45:49 AM  
"Hey Rocky! Wanna see me pull a rabbit out of a hat?"
"Nuttin' up my sleeve. Presto!"
"Gotta get me a new hat!"
"Any now for something you'll really like!"
2004-08-01 09:47:09 AM  
Looks kind of like Bullwinkle

This is all I could make out of it as well. What exactly is this supposed to be?
2004-08-01 09:47:52 AM  
It's that 11-year-old, retarded-fat-camp-arts-and-crafts-competition sort of way.

Speaking of camp, did anyone see Wet Hot American Summer. Pretty good flick. Catch it on cable.

Worst. Coin. Design. EVAR.
2004-08-01 09:48:45 AM  
I smell a ps contest..
2004-08-01 09:48:52 AM  
haha it looks like a penis
2004-08-01 09:50:07 AM  
Oh you zaney, Bacon-Wigs.
That's why we love you so down here in the Imperial Motherland.

The Backstreet Boys called, they want their hair and fashion sense back
2004-08-01 09:50:44 AM  
"Hey Rocky, watch me pull my penis out of my pants!"

"Again, but that trick never wo- *gulp*"

What Would Space Moose Do?
2004-08-01 09:51:36 AM  
Oh, and other than this particular design, I think the Canadian mint issues coins much cooler than the US Mint.

/hopes John Ashcroft isn't listening
2004-08-01 09:52:37 AM  
Damn unfeltchable link.
2004-08-01 09:54:35 AM  
Over the past 10 or so years we (Canadians) have had a large number of different quarters (my guess is over 40). I think it is great that a young kids design has been picked as the next design. What kind of national recognition did you reveive when you were 11?
2004-08-01 09:54:55 AM  
Zyklon B. Goode: ewwwwwwwwwww.
2004-08-01 09:56:28 AM  

We're not questioning the Royal Canadian Mint's decision ... we just want to know what the hell it is.
2004-08-01 09:57:28 AM  
say what you will, he did a better job than a lot of of us photoshop guys could do.

2004-08-01 09:58:16 AM  
After looking through the site I have even more respect for the Royal Canadian Mint. If you scroll down this sight you will even find some commerative coins with holograms on them.
2004-08-01 10:01:42 AM  
It is a moose. Our quarter has a moose on it for many many years and as far as I can see it is this kids interpretation on that maybe lal Bullwinkle. The thing that makes it shine to me is that it looks like they have stayed true to the kids original drawing without smoothing out the edges so to speak.

If you turn the coin upside down it looks like a hand flipping you off.
2004-08-01 10:06:38 AM  
Huh - Canada has had some cool coins, even if they have an obscure German housewife on some of them. But lordy, you Canadians have some odd folktalkes: The Pig That Wouldn't Get Over the Stile?

However, I do like the Chinese Lunar Year series.

2004-08-01 10:06:57 AM  
This thing looks like a medical photo of a swollen melanoma.

Amazingly, MS paint wins again. After it's run through a bumpmap and a renderer, that is.

Good job Canada, you amaze the world yet again.
2004-08-01 10:07:10 AM  
Canada makes some pretty cool coins. What impresses me is that their coins also commemorate and honor other nations, not just their own achievements. They've a Canadian coin with the American flag, another to celebrate the Chinese new year (which is a cool looking coin, btw).

Kudos to Canada for not being so overly pompous.
2004-08-01 10:08:46 AM  
I'd mint it.
2004-08-01 10:09:27 AM  
Or for having no culture of its very own.
2004-08-01 10:10:46 AM  
What the hell is that?!

Normally I love to laugh at all the dumb things that Americans do, but now I have to hang my head in shame at our own stupid quarter.

/we still have better beer
2004-08-01 10:11:34 AM  
It also looks like a prince albert from upside-down.

/goes back to bed
2004-08-01 10:12:41 AM  
Come on rtflakfizer,

Wear your national stupidity like a badge of honor as we do down here.
2004-08-01 10:13:03 AM

Hehe... well, we've had worse things on our money...

I, for one, am glad we got rid of those silly birds on the backs of our paper bills... it looked like our money was from Trinidad.
2004-08-01 10:22:32 AM  
You have got to be kidding.
Now, everyone together, laugh at Canada.

A Moose once bit my sister ...

2004-08-01 10:26:55 AM  
Ah hahahaha...

When I immigrate, I hope the quarters are better looking (the women already are).
2004-08-01 10:28:54 AM  
No, you guys don't get it... this is final proof that the US is going to invade Canada!

This is part of the US' 50-states (now 51) quarter program! Since this program is to end in 2008, we can expect a Canada invasion in Bush's second term.
2004-08-01 10:29:50 AM  

I hate to tell you this, but the Canadian Quarter has never had a moose on it. That's a cariboo, not a moose.

/splitting hairs
2004-08-01 10:30:47 AM  
"Awww, how sweet, the kiddy drew a picture. Let's put it on a coin and give it to the immigrants. "
2004-08-01 10:40:50 AM  
It looks like play money?
