Long Description:
Blasterz had a great time having our pictures made in the Canadian penny. Accidentally getting a Canadian penny in your change was a special treat for all us kids down in Texas -- but when we finally got to the place where they should have been EVERYWHERE, we found out they had been discontinued.

So we did the next best thing -- turned ourselves into the vanished Canadian pennies!

The photo cutout is located at the public entrance to the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg. It is accessible 24/7, although you can be sure that you are on video camera surveillance when visiting it.

So -- be sure as say a big "CHEESE!" for the several cameras ha ha
