Located in the Old Mill Park with the majestic Trent River as its back-drop, the present two dollar coin or Toonie, was built in 2001 to recognize the efforts of a local artist who created the polar bear that was used on the coin. The $2 Coin stands 27 feet (8.2 metres) high and 18 feet (5.5 metres) in diameter.

This is actually the second monument built for the community of Campbellford. The first one was built in 1996 by the Town of Campbellford. It stood only a few feet away from the current monument. It was 20 feet high (6.1 metres), and it was made with over 700 white and yellow lights and took almost 100 man hours to create. The Canadian Mint proclaimed Campbellford, The Home of the Two Dollar Coin in 1997.

The most famous bear in Canada the one stamped on toonies has turned 16 (2017) and now has a name. After adding up 166,635 ballots cast during the Royal Canadian Mint’s Name Our Polar Bear Contest, the winning moniker, with 34% of the vote, is Churchill.
