CA state quarter

The "new" nickel

I got change from a vending machine recently, and one of the coins was one of the new Lewis & Clark nickels with the Big Head Jefferson.

I saw it and I thought, "What the heck? A Canadian nickel?" No, it's one of those new coins. They not only look odd, but they FEEL odd as well, the edge is raised and kind of sharp.

The Kansas quarter kinda looks Canadian, too. Isn't there a Canadian coin with a buffalo on it as well?
