Exchange your old loonie for a 2017 collectible coin

Here's your chance to meet the man who designed this year's 150th special edition loonie.

A loonie exchange runs today from 10 am to 3pm at the St. Catharines post office on Queen Street.

Residents can exchange up to three loonies for three new 2017 coins and will also be able to meet Wesley Klassen, the St. Catharines man who designed them.

Participants will also get a Canada 150 collector card which Klassen will sign.
