Royal Canadian Mint struggles to make money, hopes Justin Trudeau topless coin is the answer.

The Royal Canadian Mint isn’t as profitable as it used to be – it wants to make more money.

Many Trudeau fans would like a life sized Trudeau coin but will have to settle for a pocket sized version

The Mint is struggling financially. Sales are down, layoffs, poor morale, and business lines being shut down all add up to a 61% drop in profits.

The executive tried to turn things around by spending millions of dollars on new executive offices. So far this hasn’t worked.  (Rumors are they got a deal on the construction because they pay in cash.)

Another idea is to capitalize on the worldwide popularity of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by striking a new coin with his image. The Mint chose a popular topless image of Trudeau sporting a “Sunny Ways” tattoo.

The coin sports the same image on both sides as Trudeau did not want the coin to be used for games of chance. A 2 headed coin makes it impossible to flip.

Although many Albertans are saying it has 2 tails as it has the picture of an ass on it.

Some are calling it the Nudie, the Trudie, or the Sunny what would you call this coin?
