The coin on the right in the above images is a Montreal Mint counterfeit. It is catalogued on CamelToeToonies.ca as MTL04.

Report it to eBay as a counterfeit. Email me the item ID number and I'll do the same.

Over the past week I received four (4) fake toonies in my change.
Is anyone else finding more fake toonies?

I've been seeing a significant uptick. My average through October is now 1.3%. It was half that in July.

The new fakes with the polar bear foot claw are considered legal tender atm so it's not illegal for stores people or even banks to accept them and give them out, so the new fakes can be sold


Sorry, but that is just ridiculous.

Agreed.. In no way are these considered legal tender.

I think that was me, and I have been educated since. I apologize for my early ignorance on this topic.
