    I’ve recently started collecting again with my 8-year old daughter. We’d like to collect 1 of each circulation toonie but I’m having trouble figuring out which ones we will be able to find in circulation. For example, in 1999, there was the commemorative Nunavut coin. Was there also a regular polar bear edition in circulation?
    Similarly for 2000. It seems there was a Knowledge commemorative version, a Polar Bear with W and was there also a non-W Polar Bear? Should I be trying to find all 3 or was there really low mintage of some of these so I shouldn’t try? Is there any way to find the circulation mintage of each variety?

    Thank you for your help.
