I got not just one, but two different $1 coins when I was in Seattle this year. Got 'em both when I used a machine to get a light rail pass from the airport to downtown.
Ah a fellow Canadian!! ^_^ Yeah I've got so used to the Loonies and Twonies, I'm old enough to remember the $2 bank note, but not the $1. My grandma saved a bunch and I do have a crisp 1 & 2 dollar note when she passed away many years back. In fact, my uncle used to gift all us nephews cool stamp or currency things and one was of the twonie, still have it.
I think you know what I wound up doing with the coins than. hehe They are neat, I've never seen them, one is a 1979 and the other is a 2007 presidential.
addition Yeah I typically save any American coins in for any trips over. Although > _ > < _ < I have been known to use an occasional Canadian quarter at toll booths. heh
Oh, one more thing but more a general related to the thread now. Back in, 2015 Bronycon, I wound up finding a 10 Agorot from Israel and a Vietnamese 1 đồng both under the beds of that room. 6_9 crazy I love collecting coins though heh.
