In 2015 a the mint held national contest to  pick the design of the 2017 toonie design to celebrate Canada's 150 birthday. I really like our current toonie design, but change is always good.
10 million toonies will have the new design. The winners are two brothers from Richmond.
The brothers were given $2000, a trip to Ottawa for two and of course the special edition set of coins.

The winning toonie theme that won depicts the northern lights. Extremely fitting I think.

In the next 5 years all our Canadian change from nickles to the toonie will be graced with new and fresh designs.
