No.  I'm just adding in the denominations on the coins themselves.

2/3
Yes.

Point of clarification.  He used the plural form of each, which would mean that there are at least 2 loonies and at least 2 toonies.  Is your answer still yes with this taken into account?

Canada's killing the penny, so unless he brought them with him, he likely didn't get any there.

I think you're missing my point.  While it is theoretically possible to get a half-dollar in change from somewhere, the odds against it are astronomical.  I don't regularly walk around with a peso in my pocket either (although for full disclosure I do keep a two dollar bill in my wallet :) )

And to add, I was talking specifically about the Canadian half-dollar.  I've never seen one.

I thought this would be a really big clue.  Pennies were phased out in February.
