June 21, 2011, Canada – The Royal Canadian Mint has scheduled the release of new lighter weight Loonies and Toonies for January 2012.

The Canadian Automatic Merchandising Association (CAMA) is urging all industry members to ensure that their coin mechs are programmed before the new one and two dollar coins find their way into Canadians' pockets.

"Your supplier should have programming available in early July, and we encourage members to contact suppliers and ask for further details," a statement on CAMA's website reads.

Members attending the CAMA Expo in Montreal on September 16 will have the opportunity to attend a bilingual educational session, hosted by the Royal Canadian Mint, to learn more about how the new coins will impact the industry.
