Spare a Terry?

Someone told me this story today and I thought it was an urban legend, or at the very least, one of those gullibility tests (I seem to fall for those). I guess I was wrong. It wasn't so much that I didn't think Terry Fox would be commemorated on a Canadian coin, but this part:

"Usually the coin is called the loonie, but Fox suggests perhaps Canadians should call this coin the 'Terry.'"

I suppose it makes sense; you wouldn't want to call somebody a loonie. But Queen Elizabeth is on the coin too... along with the loon on the other side.
