Ontario Provincial Police say they are investigating the use of fake toonies to pay for items at a store east of Ottawa.

Police said a store on Regent Street in the Town of Hawkesbury reported the coins at about 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

Investigators determined counterfeit $2 coins were used to purchase items.

Photos released by the OPP show the fake toonies with the wording “Z DOLLARD” on one side of the coin.
