The new cent is round; but is it copper coated zinc?

Are any of the coins changing over to nickel coated steel?
Is that 10th aniversary dollar only for mint sets (that is what
my brochure from the RCM says), or are they expected to appear
in circulation?

Sorry about answering French with English, but I cannot read or
write French, I can just guess at what it says from the context
that I already know.

The 1 cent piece goes back to being round

The 50 cent piece is getting a needed adjustment.  The coat-of-arms of Canada
has been modified.

A $1 commemorative has been struck to celebrate the 10th Anniversary
of the loonies arrival into circulation.

You're right about that fact!  The 10th anniversary loonies will be
available ONLY in the "Specimen Set" or the "Oh Canada Set"...
It was a mistake that I made and I join all my apology...

Yes, as posted before the blanks are being supplied by the same US
firm that supplies blanks for US cents.

Yes, .05, .10, .25, .50.

None of the mint sets are changed though.

I never saw it stated they were exclusively for RCM sets.  I expect them
to be released into circulation July 1 1997 (but have no proof just
a gut feeling). They've never made a loonie that didn't circulate.

I did post a translation (and mentioned it all about 3 weeks ago...)

I thought I'd read that the 1867-1992 dollar coin (with the loon, not the
kids on Parliament) wasn't a circulation piece.  Did I get some
misinformation?

The RCM catalog says 2.5 grams of bronze.  This is consistent with
both the U.S. copper coated zinc, and the 1996 Canadian "ultra thin"
bronze (actually brass) small cents.  I suppose I will be able to
tell the difference based on the color.

Boooooo!  Yes, the RCM catalog also says pure nickel.

On the set specifications page there is a footnote stating

"* Espcially minted for 1997 Specimen and "Oh Canada" Sets"

* is tagged on Anniversary $1

Maybe I wasn't paying attention.  I just got the french language
post a couple of days ago.

About 4 million double dated 1992 loon dollars were released into circulation.
The lowest mintage of the series and a tough, tough, circulation find.
A mint roll costs around $35 at dealers.

The Canada 125 - Parliment Buildings, children with flag was a business
strike and considered a commerative.

The cent has been 2.5g since 1982.   As with the others it looks like
plated versions will be business strike only.

For the type collector the only way to get a new coat-of-arms nickel 50
cent piece will be to buy a UNC or specemen set. And only this year..

i see it, don't hold you're breath.  Even Canadian Coin News (usually
a RCM mouthpiece) won't commit to this being the dollars only appearance.

It was titled something like "Changes to Canadian Coinage".  It appeared
right after I received the catalogue...
