Cool Currency

Unless I buy some more currency, this will probably be the last of my "cool currency" posts--and since my last post dealt with our friends to the south, this one will deal with our friends to the north.

Notes from Canada are not made of paper, but of a polymer--they don't rip, they'll survive in the washing machine, and they're hard to counterfeit since part of them is transparent.  Like the currency of so many other countries, each Canadian denomination has a different primary color:

The $5 bill is blue, the $10 bill is purple, the $20 bill is green, for example.    Note the transparent strip as well as the maple leaf.

 Now I have to start some "cool coin" posts!
