    Finally, something to use all those American coins I have lying around… 😀

    Bummer for you VintagePC, US coins aren’t magnetic.

    That’s unfortunate… also means you can’t easily fish your coins out from behind the sofa without moving it then, hehe.

    “that you can make for a few dollars” – more just a few cents from the looks of things…

    As a bonus, this lens cover promotes the great Canadian icon the “Bluenose” built in Nova Scotia (or Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, II if you show the face of the coin rather than the obverse).

    A circa 1960s replica, originally built to promote a beer but now used for tourism promotion, is currently being re-built and can be followed online at: http://www.novascotiawebcams.com/south-shore/bluenose-ii.html

    Your comment brings back memories of my childhood. Makes me want to take a trip to see it being built!

    I remember seeing the Bluenose Canadian Heritage placement along side TV commercials when I was a kid. Thanks to Youtube I was able to find the actual video.
