New $5 and $10 bills revealed today

Did you know Canada..  with help from our favourite Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, the new $5 and $10 polymer bills where revealed today.




The $5 bill features images of the Canadarm and Dextre (Canada's robotic handyman in space).  The $10 bill features a scenic train.

Check out some photos of the new bills here.  I've read not everyone is impressed with the new bills, calling them cartoon-y, and now that the polymer set is complete, how do you feel about Canada's currency?

  1. Im not fully impressed - I find the bills stick and do have a cartoony feel.

    Granted, if it makes it harder for people to counterfeit - I guess it's worth it!

    1. Before it didn't matter as I wasn't carrying around $100's lol.. haven't had a problem with the $20's yet, will see what it's like with a bunch of $5's when they come into circulation

  3. Everyone says that the new bills stick together but I have yet to have that happen to me. I actually like the bills, their designs and the way they were made. I do however miss the hockey rink on the 5 but the Canadarm is still pretty cool.

    1. I haven't had them stick together, but I hate how they don't fold completely
