One question I've never asked until now...
Why the Canadian dollar is called the loonie?
The answer is really simple: There's a picture of a loon on one side of the $1 coin.
A loon is a bird that looks not unlike a duck, and is extremely common in Canada. They're also pretty vocal, and make several types of pleasant hoots and wails.
