Loonie- Fake or ?

I pulled this 1987 loonie from the till a few weeks ago. It's a lot brighter and shinier than a typical loonie from the same time period. Also, lighter in colour. The weight is correct.

Die Gouge on 2000 Canada Cents and Questions

I purchased 8 rolls of new 2008 Canada cents and found 12 coins that contained die chips in the word "REGINA" in the letters "R" and "G". Anyone else come across this?

2008 Canada one cent error?

I picked up a few rolls of new 2008 cents to hunt through and found approx. 25 with a problem with the lamination. Most were very minor but visible with magnification but then I have a couple that looks like the one below. How common is this? http://www.coinsandcanada.com/forum/class/test/2008c6.jpe...
