Over the next few weeks, you’ll be able to walk into your local bank and get your hands on Canada’s first polymer bank note.

On 14 November, the Bank of Canada issued the new $100 polymer note and Canadians can now see and feel what all the hoopla is about.

As the images printed on the note and its leading-edge security features demonstrate, Canada’s new currency reflects the country’s spirit of innovation.

 

This is the most secure series of notes the Bank has ever issued.  With its large window containing metallic elements, it’s like no other bank note in the world. The innovation in bank note security is a nice complement to the theme of the $100 note—medical innovation.
