CANADIAN MINT $2 COIN NAMING

Regarding last week's suggestion of "Boonik" as a name for the new
Canadian $2 polar bear coin, John Regitko writes: "Dick Johnson is
not exactly correct when he states that "Canada is looking for a
name for their new $2 coin with a polar bear on the reverse."  The
Royal Canadian Mint is asking people to vote on one of the FIVE NAMES
ONLY that they propose. Had they asked for recommendations, I venture
to guess that they would have received thousands of different names.
They would be names of people's pets, names of their children and,
because of our multicultural society, names popular in everyone's
country of birth."

[What are the five choices?  I was unable to find them on the RCM
web site.  -Editor]
