I'm impressed by the coin-on-a-coin.

Oh yeah, the 1-euro! Weird ancient blobby edges and everything!

It's nice, but not the first such coin. Canada had one before Europe.

You talking about the dime? Because the Bluenose is a schooner, not a Corvette (unless the two terms overlap, I live in the middle of the prairies, sailing ships I know none.)

Actually, I think he was referring to the two-tone Toonie. But I don't think even the Toonie was the first such coin. (For example, A two-tone 20 peso from Mexico)

Hey, our icons are in sync!

(Also, see my response to deckardcanine to clear up the confusion.)

I think he's talking about this coin. Not the fact that it's two-toned, but that it depicts an ancient 4-drachma coin.

The Toonie has an actual coin within the coin as well. But it's not ancient.
