Giant Canadian $2 Coin

Campbellford artist Brent Townsend created the polar bear image that was used on the Two Dollar Coin, also known as the "Toonie." This 27-ft. tall, 18-ft. diameter metal statue was built in 2001 to acknowledges his effort.

But if the $1 coin depicts a loon and is called a "Loonie," why isn't the $2 coin a "Bearie"?
