It is a beautiful and brilliant notion that the Bank of Canada is introducing new high-tech feature polymer bills that will reduce the risk of forgery and make public financial transactions easier.

It is a beautiful and brilliant notion that the Bank of Canada is introducing new high-tech feature polymer bills that will reduce the risk of forgery and make public financial transactions easier.

Other countries like New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Bangladesh already have plastic money in circulation, which has been used by these countries with more convenience.

People find those plastic bills are just like regular ones in common financial function, but are more durable and attractive.

On the international economic market, the Canadian dollar is recognized as one of the most reliable currencies to be found, gladly exchangeable anywhere, so security features should be complicated.

Bank of Canada last issued the $1 bill in 1973 and $2 bill was last printed in 1986. With those days gone by,  launching the polymer bill will mean the end of the paper-bill era.

People of Canada will eagerly await the new money to come out for shopping pleasure and, for some, fun and collection purposes.
