Bright and shiny

I had no idea Canada was acquiring itself a new coin. As it turns out, it's a temporary issue, and the treasury isn't likely to do more than one run. I went to pay for a stamp this afternoon and, instead of two quarters, was handed only one shiny silvery coin. At first I thought the change was wrong, but then I realized the coin didn't look usual. It's a loonie-sized shiny silver thing, issued in honor of Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee festivities. It came out somewhen this past week when she was in town.
