Very good, Bynx!

An additional bathtub plughole would have helped too, but spolit the careful composition. Somehow I think politicians may be less enthusiastic, or at least more cautious,in future about having themselves associated with piles of money.

Great job. As usual, the question of photographing currency and posting comes up. I thought I knew the rules but I'm not really sure anymore, especially when international boundaries are involved.

What are those coins with the colorful centers. Are those variations of the "Toonie, the Canadian Two-Dollar coin"? For those who don't know, the Canadian One-Dollar coin has long been called a "Loonie". When the two-dollar coin was issued, it was natural to nickname it a "Toonie". This is true!

The quarter coin is constantly changing. The front usually stays the same with the Queens mug on it while the back advertises some event -- the 2010 Olympics with different sport events, Remembrane Day which had a limited release with a white center and a red poppy. Another release was the white center with a pink ribbon for Cancer. The collage Ive submitted is legally ok since none of the currency bills are completely visible in any way usable for counterfeiting purposes. By the way the Loonie got its name because the back of the dollar coin has a Loon on it. Hence, Loonie and the 2 dollar coin the Toonie.
