Newfie Quarters

Valuable Quarters.

Hang on to any of the new Newfoundland Quarters. If you have them, they may be worth much more than 25 cents.

The Canadian Mint announced today that it is recalling all of the Newfoundland quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each province.

This action is being taken after numerous reports that the new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones,
or any other coin operated device.

The problem lies in the unique design of the Newfoundland quarter, which was designed by a team of Newfoundlanders. Apparently the duct tape
holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming up the machines.

Thanks Bernie C.
Poor Newfies
