The Canadian government is stepping up its security game with the introduction of polymer currency, starting with $100 bills.
I heard Australia had these, and they have a few more security features which make them more identifiable
I got my first 100 buck bill today from the bank. So seexxyy LOL@article: The not was officially released into circulation by Governor Mark Carney at an event in Toronto, not should be note xD
Haha, seems the bank's own press release also had the mistake.
plastic bills are a surfers best friend. When in Oz I got to take some bills with me into the water for a cold beer across from the beach after a session without them turning into mush. Just need a pocket on my wetsuit now for my Canadian surf sessions.
I wish I was counterfeiter, this would be a challenge.
That's the beauty of counterfeiting, it's never too late to start! lol jk. It's too late.
We've had plastic since forever. Not sure why Canada is adopting this now. I honestly couldnt imagine fragile 'paper' as money.
Canada's previous currency was not paper either, the current and 5 years ago 5-20$ bills are made of a plastic resin hybrid, its why money survives the washing machine for the most part, all they did here was in crease the plastic used for (50 / 100$) the sake of clear space, thus making it harder to counterfeit. Either way they look much cooler, something about looking through a 50/100$ bill and saying "I see you" is a totally new experience lol.
