hello new to this section,

so i live in canada and cannot use coins as it is 100% illegal I am unsure about US quarters as they are used just as often as currency (look just like a canadian quarter with a fast glance same with british and ive even found AUD in my wallet) i can get brass and copper sheets would this be a good idea or should i look for another source

The Currency Act's prohibition of melting down, breaking up, etc applies to "any coin that is current and legal tender in Canada." In other words, if it's a Canadian coin, leave it alone. If it's a coin from any other country (including from the US), go for it. Just because it's in common use does NOT make it legal tender.

That said, teenylittlemetalguy had a post a few years back about how much better it is to use plain sheet metal instead of coins:
