The Canadian two dollar coin is commonly called the toonie. Its nickname name is a play off the one dollar coin called the loonie, which features a loon on the reverse side of the coin. The toonie has a distinct appearance with the nickel outside and a bronze interior. The front of the coin reflects an image of Queen Elizabeth, while the reserve side shows a polar bear.
How many toonies in a roll? A standard roll of toonies contains 25 coins, which is the same as the loonie rolls. A toonie roll filled with 25 coins has a value of $50.00.
