Programming Coin Mechanism



Canada's new loonies and loonies and toonies may cause headaches and extra expense for businesses.

Earlier this week, the Royal Canadian Mint put into circulation a new generation of the coins that use patented, multi-ply steel technology, which has been used in smaller coins since 2001.

Although the appearance, diameter and thickness of the coins remains the same, an official with the mint says the density has changed by "fractions of a gram."

The new coins also have enhanced security features.

Businesses, however, say the new coins will require upgrades to coin-operated machines.
