It looks like the Loony is counterstamped? And euros don't circulate in Canada, as pointed out in the post above. Somebody slipped it in for a dollar. And a '59 cent is always cool.

Wow!! I didn't know that
I received this today
I have done several searches to find out if there is anything counter stamped, I found nothing for my coin.
Wasn't aware they aren't produced anymore. I might have to hold onto it then.
Sometimes a counterstamp is just some random knucklehead with a hammer and a punch in his garage having fun or passing time. I can't really tell from your photo if yours is counter stamped or not.
It was done that way during the minting of the coin.
Here is a picture from the Numista website. It is considered a security feature showing a maple.

being right on the Canadian border we used to get a lot of canadian money as general change. The stores around here used to accept a Canadian quarter equal to a US quarter. In the past 5 years though many places stopped accepting Canadian currency, although their cent still made it through.
@paddyman98 @meandyou4ever0 His information on the Loonie is 100% correct. Look no further.
As for the Canadian Cent, someone may know the last year of production for them but I don’t. It’s been a number of years now that Canada stopped minting them.
2013 the last year of distribution. A lot of internet articles out there about it, wiki, etc.
here's one from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation ==> Obituary: Canadian penny, 1858-2013 | CBC News
Thank you. I knew someone would know the answer. Hard to believe it’s been that long. It’s nice that Canada didn’t use zinc for their cents.
here's a few - I had to tone it down because the quarter was so reflective.
I received a Canadian quarter but mine does not have the same design
