    I have some of the coinage in my collection, including the only 20 cent piece ever minted for Canada. It was minted only in 1858.

    It's sterling silver and is almost exactly the same size and weight as the sterling silver quarters minted for Canada.http://m.coinsandcanada.com/coins-pr...Envoyer=Search

    On this day in 1956, a baby girl was born in Oranjestad on the island of Aruba. Right now she is sitting about 5 feet from me...my wife.
