The loonie (French: huard), formally the Canadian one-dollar coin, is a gold-coloured coin that was introduced in 1987. The most prevalent versions of the coin show a common loon, a bird found throughout Canada. Various commemorative and specimen-set editions of the coin with special designs replacing the loon on the reverse have been minted over the years.
During the 2003 production run the obverse was changed to feature a new, more mature looking effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. In 2006 a new stylized Royal Canadian Mint logo was added below the Queen's effigy.
