Toronto Transit Commission - 2006
Starting November 2006, a new bi-metallic token was put into production especially to prevent counterfeiting, replacing the 30 million tokens in circulation. Heavier, 20 million tokens were ordered in 2006 and for $2 millions, 20 million more in 2008. In 2010, counterfeit tokens were discovered. They have the same weight and the same size, but there are small typographical errors and they don't work in the automatic turnstiles.
