Canadian coins have really gone down hill since they started making them out of steel plated with nickle. I find lots of rusty dimes. I've also noticed that US pennies seem to look cheaper somehow (pun intended). Anyone else notice this? PS. I like the design changes on the US coins- Canada should do something similiar.

I just noticed this the other day. I had a couple of US nickles and pennies in my hand and was jingling them around and they sounded like play money.
