A loonie was a type of coin, equal to one dollar, that was used in Canada during the 20th century through the 22nd century. First issued in 1987, it features the image of a loon on one side, and the head of the current monarch of Canada (one and the same as the monarch of the UK) on the reverse.
Michael Eddington kept what he referred to as a "lucky loonie." It had been a family heirloom for over two hundred years. He left the loonie, along with other personal items, on Deep Space 9 when he joined the Maquis. Benjamin Sisko believed it might have been placed in an Assay office locker after his defection.
