Trivia tidbit du jour

Did you know that Canadian coins stick to magnets?
I was carrying around one of the spiffy Google pins I got at Gnomedex in my pocket this weekend, and noted that one of the coins I had stuck to it (quite strongly). Fishing it out, I noticed it was a Canadian quarter.
Having been brought up with the knowledge that “Coins do not stick to magnets” this was quite an interesting discovery.
