Wow, live and learn I guess; you folks don't have a one-dollar bill? I guess I haven't been paying attention to the right threads!

Great contest DBM and very generous, wish I had thought of it. I won't be participating because I lack the knowledge but here are my best guesses for strictly edutainment value.

1-When was the first Canadian loon dollar issued for circulation?
A) The moment after I stole the voyageur dies

2-When was the last Canadian silver dollar issued for ciculation?
A) When we adopted the Texas dictionary

3-When was the last Canadian nickel dollar issued for circulation?
A) 2012 I think

4-In what year was the last Canadian 1 dollar bill printed?
1935, the year they stopped making notes only in French, everything since then is a sham

5-What is the composition of the prize coin?
Pocket lint and zinc scrapings from all the zincolns that fall apart in my coin jar

Good luck to everyone!
