Peterborough police are advising the public about counterfeit $2 coins that may be circulating in the region.
Police say the coins had been located in the out-chute of a coin machine at a Chemong Road plaza.
Anyone with information is asked to call Peterborough police at 705-876-1122 ext. 555 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.stopcrimehere.ca.
Global News Peterborough has requested more details on the coins.
In January, OPP issued a warning about fake $2 coins located at a store in the Town of Hawkesbury.
In that incident, the coins had “Z DOLLARD” on one side of the coin and featured images of a seal and a man’s head instead of Queen Elizabeth II on the “heads” side and a polar bear on the “tails” side, respectively.
