  • Of course, a nickel! Now why didn’t I think of that? That’s a really edgy take on today’s theme, Mike.

  • how did you balance that nickel?

  • Two cents for your thoughts….

  • That is a wonderful setup and shot! LOVE Mr. Beaver too!

  • This is a really great photo, Mike! I love both the idea and the execution. 🙂

    I’d say something about the beaver, but I’m pretty sure MikeWJ will have about a dozen beaver jokes to tell…

  • Barb

    How did you get it to stand up????

  • Coco

    I love your picture again. Beaver bank! 😉

  • Very clever as always.

  • Nice one!!!!!

  • Nice shot!!

  • MikeWJ

    I totally understand the Canadian obsession with beavers. They’re just…well, they’re amazing. Right, Mike?

  • MikeWJ

    I would’ve enjoyed seeing a different spin on it, myself.

  • MikeWJ

    So many jokes here. I just don’t know where to start…..

  • Very cool picture. I don’t see a beaver though.

  • Okay, I enlarged it. Is that a picture of a beaver humping a snake?

  • I remember when your coins worked in our vending machines. Damn shame y’all cheaped out on the metals. Now nothing in the world makes a lick sense.

  • Ever think about recycling this for the coins prompt?

  • ladyV

    why is there a beaver on your coin. explain. and yes, i thought the beaver was humping something too.

  • I just stood it up and it stayed. No trick!

  • They are! And they’ve got those sharp teeth and everything!

  • Seriously, I just stood it up and took the shot. I guess I got lucky 🙂

  • Thank you!

  • Your last nickel is a Canadian one???

  • Start with the beaver!

  • No no, it’s on a rock. Or maybe it’s his dam?

  • Thanks!

  • I know. A don’t even think a nickel is made of nickel anymore.

  • There’s an idea. I’ll need to balance a bunch of them for that one.

  • Well, long story short, the beaver is our national animal. And I looked it up: He’s humping a log.

  • Thanks!

  • How about 5?

  • Love the shapes, round chairs, round table, round coin. You don’t have a national bird?

  • the loon?

    well, it is on a coin after all


  • Ah, but we also have the caribou on the quarter – larger currency – larger “pellets” (not shown).


  • Not so much but then again ours aren’t as nickelly as they once were either. I think all our coins are made from blood, sweat, and tears with a thin veneer of the original metals

  • I missed the loon. Who’s the loon now?
