so i went to the kwiki mart earlier to pick up some beer and slim jims. i wanted some of the 'really freaking hot' habenero flavored ones, but they were all out so i had to get the 'freaking hot' jalapeno flavored ones. this was a terrible inconvenience as i am a hard man and the habanero flavored ones arent that hot to me, much less the weaker jalapeno flavored ones. the clerk handed me my change which consisted of a Canadian quarter. yeah i know, just wait it gets worse. so as im walking out, i flip over the quarter and see this:





fucking serious Canada?

since when does a 4 year old's kitchen fridge doodle merit the minting of a coin? like really, what were you thinking? that person has goddamn wings and a terrible case of the bandy-legs. idk, i guess news travels slowly up there by mooseback, but let me fill you in that it is indeed possible to etch rather detailed images onto coins. like so:

It looks like a horse is about to perform oral sex on a scarecrow while a large pizza levitates above said horse.

Says the American whining about coin pictures?

I am not exactly patriotic or supportive of capitalism, but come on. America has pretty awesome coins.

Just look at the level of detail on our least valuable denomination:

Oh yeah

I have a collection of at least 30 different US coins. They're a lot more interesting than ours.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Bitch please, our coins are like Pokemon. Gotta get them all.

sigh....alright I'll bite. First off, we do have coins from that same series that have a lot more detail in them than that. Secondly, that month's theme was "Etched in Stone" and the whole point of the '99 series was to look at our past. As you can imagine, you could not make a very intricate design in stone with primitive tools hence the horrible design that is on that quarter. It is ugly I agree, but that wasn't the point of that quarter.

Actually, a thing that has been happening somewhat recently is having some colour in the coins as well.



Anyways, yeah.

Thank you, covered what I was going to say and then some.

You Americans shouldn't be worried about how our money looks, just focus on that debt of yours that isn't coming down anytime soon...

I think America could learn a thing or two here.

If there's one thing our currency needs, it's horses fellating scarecrows... or anything, really. I've grown bored of seeing our president's sex faces.

This is true. I propose a whole line of nickels in recognition of our backwoods, incest animal banging citizens. Beatiality lovers are people too!

dude, dont be blaming other people when your coin designers decided to try to etch coins by banging rocks on sharpened bones or some shit. we have high tech tools like diamond crusted etching bits now. saying 'they were made with primitive tools' really isnt any excuse for the artistic renderings of a toddler.

It's from the millennium collection from 1999-2000. That piece was called "Etched in Stone" and it was a depiction of early Native Canadian art work (and it looked just as crappy as the early Native Americans'). There are a bunch of other cool quarters in that collection too such as the following:

Quote by hawk5211
Yeah that was a special run. There were quite a few of them IIRC.

Mainly its because this country panders to its Native population far too much.
Agree completely. It's actually infuriating knowing that the Natives get a whole lot of tax breaks, job opportunities, special government programs, business deals and literally free money just because they're Native. Coming from Labrador, a place with about 40% Innu and Inuit population, I've got a pretty decent idea on how the Natives are treated here. And it's disappointing.

You guys can always pack your shit up and move back to France.

Ahahaha oh you silly ignorant fool, if you think Canada panders to native people, you haven`t really learned true Canadian history and the atrocities that Canada has committed.
We're talking modern day, not the shitty things we did 60+ years ago. Have you even lived near a Canadian Native reserve?

Those reserves should be gotten rid of, because a lot of them just seem to be a collection of crime, although contained within their community, still a large amount of crime.

Sorry, I should note I live in Alberta. I have no idea what other reserves are like except for the few that sit around Edmonton + Cold Lake

I guess so. I've only heard of it and the only things I've heard of is its cod fishing and extinction of the Beothuk. That cod fishing industry seems pretty cool (or whats left of it).
