New Edinburgh

New Edinburgh is a neighbourhood in Rideau-Rockcliffe Ward, in Ottawa, Canada. It is located to the northeast of the downtown core, it is bordered on the west by the Rideau River, to the north by the Ottawa River, to the south by Beechwood Avenue, on the east by Princess Avenue, Lisgar Road, Rideau Terrace and Springfield Road. The area is an older, affluent neighbourhood; the Governor General of Canada's large residence and grounds are located in New Edinburgh, as is 24 Sussex Drive, official residence of the Prime Minister of Canada. The neighbourhood is home to several embassies and consulates, including those of Spain, South Africa, India and Slovakia. Civil servants compose a fair portion of the population. Like Rockcliffe Park, the neighbourhood is English-speaking, in comparison to the French-speaking district of Vanier to the south; the total population of New Edinburgh is 3,108. New Edinburgh was founded by Thomas one of the builders of the Rideau Canal lock system, he bought the land at the junction of the Ottawa and Rideau Rivers in 1829 and created a village named for Edinburgh in his native Scotland.

Pronounced as rhyming with "Pittsburgh", the traditional pronunciation would be'New Edinburrah' owing to Mackay's Scottish heritage. The streets in the neighbourhood were named after McKay's family. Crichton was his wife's maiden name, Keefer his son in law, while Thomas and Charles were his sons; the area was largely industrial, home to a number of mills using the power of the river. Part of Gloucester Township, New Edinburgh was incorporated as a separate village in 1866 by a special act of parliament, but was annexed in 1887 by Ottawa. In August 2000, The School of Dance moved into its building in New Edinburgh where the old Crichton Street School was. New Edinburgh has their own local community newspaper, New Edinburgh News, assisted by many of the locals; the population as of the Canada 2006 Census was 3,627.

Australian Silver Kangaroo

The Australian Silver Kangaroo is a one troy ounce silver bullion coin minted by the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra, Australia. They have legal tender status in Australia and are one of few legal tender bullion silver coins to change their design every year; this and their limited annual mintage may, unlike for many other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of silver used. The Silver Kangaroo series was introduced in 1993 by the Royal Australian Mint, an agency wholly owned and run by the Commonwealth Government of Australia. Silver Kangaroo coins are issued in two forms: a proof coin and a frosted uncirculated coin, although coins with selective gold plating have been issued from 2003.
