Hold on to the New Quarter
Hang on to any of the new 2007 Newfoundland Quarters. If you have them; they may be worth much more than 25 cents.The Canadian Mint announced today that it is recalling all of the Newfoundland quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each province.
This action is being taken after numerous reports that the new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or any other coin operated device.
The problem lies in the unique design of the quarter, which was designed by a team of genuine Newfoundlanders.
Apparently the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming the machines.
