Check out Canada's funky money

The new $20 bill is coming out soon and looks refreshing. The polymer bills are weird at first since they feel like rubber,...and in places they are transparent,,....

We allowed the Queen on our money, just cuz we like her grandkid Harry, and the brothers wife...or otherwise

It's coming out tomorrow isn't it?

Apparently they melt in the sun! (...My brother in law works at the mint...)

Printed on polymar produced in Australia.

I like when new bills come out. They give the temporary illusion that I can buy more with them.

I like Canada's money, coins and bills, more interesting and colorful than boring euros and dull US dollars.

They are just making them prettier so you guys will actually use them.

Come to think of it, that's a brilliant plan for economic stimulation!

I don't know if that would work here, though, Juni.

Americans like shiny things and if you made the money shiny, we would keep it and not spend it. What we should do is make the money duller so Americans will trade it for more and more shiny things.

Lefty is correct. We made our US dollar coin shiny and minted millions of them. They sit in bank vaults and government repositories because no one will use them.
