That one time the trailer full of condoms and sex toys collided with the bus full of sex addicts is pretty far up there.

Brinks crash spills millions in coins

I'm sure the cops arrived and made sure the thousands in coins were cleaned up.

Oh wait...Canada? Yeah, the bank will get it all back. Probably with interest.

Magnetic cranes coming in to pick up the money. Lucky them. Cleaning this up in the States would be a pain in the butt.

That is the fourth time someone has said that exact line on Fark today, and just in the thread's I've watched. YOu know what that means? BENDER PARTY.

I was reading and said they were bringing in magnetic cranes. In the US none of the coins are made out of a magnetic metals, I guess they do that in Canada.

magnetic metals


There is actually a word for that, and we need to ensure it does not fall by the wayside.

Save ferrous.

I have about 100 pounds of Canadian coins in the trunk of my car, so I'm really getting a kick...

All the 'newer' Canadian coins are made of steel. The older ones are made out of copper and nickel.

So when (and I mean when) I spill my coins, a broom and dustpan is more useful than a magnet.

was it a springo? or a trice or thrice candy? cause those are always useful.

Took my seven-year old son to the Royal Canadian Mint about a month ago. The coins consist of steel and then are coated.

All the staff wear uniforms that have no metal. When they leave the coin area, they pass through very sensitive metal detectors.

They make something like seven BILLION coins a year in Winnipeg and are expanding to add another three billion. Canada makes a lot of coins for other countries.

It was pretty cool seeing the big hoppers full of coins from the gallery that is above the coin area. Thousands of two-dollar coins in one, thousands of one-dollar coins in another. They get wrapped up by the machine and people put them in boxes. The boxes are then loaded on pallets. I don't know the exact term, but there was a crapload of money down there.

The Royal Canadian Mint makes some amazing coins. Google it and go see all they make.

Oh, so am I!!

/Wish I was there to collect a few coins?
//Been to South Porcupine, but never met their OPP. Whew!

jslater25 The visual on that is excellent. Imagine a pinata driving thru the Northern Ontario bushland. I wish we had those when I was a kid up there.

I went on the tour of the one in Ottawa, where they make the commemorative coins and things like Olympic medals. It was astonishing to see coils of 24k gold lying around on pallets.
