I think they've issued several commemoratives where the date is moved to the obverse. The locals can probably give you a more comprehensive list, so I'm moving this thread over to the Canadian subforum.

To be honest, I never really liked the 2002 set of coins. I realize they were to celebrate an anniversary, but it always bugged me not having the dates in the usual spots. I usually try to put those back in circulation as quick as I find them.
