    New Canadian bank notes are so amazing.





    Do you guys know of other bank notes that are as awesome as these?

    I don't know whether to spend it or to frame it and hang it on the wall, looks pretty cool.

    They are plastic so they shouldn't, maybe if you try really hard. Haven't tested it myself though.

    Australia seems to have polymer notes as well, this vid was uploaded back in 2008, so not sure how long they have been using them...

    They look nice but I find it weird that they come in different colors.

    I guess I'm just used to greenish-yellow American dollar bills.

    the rest of the commonwealth is catching up with these two tiny islands

    Makes it easier to know what money you have so you are less likely to give the wrong one out or accept the wrong one when receiving change.

    Late to the show Canada, Australia's been doing it first since the 90's I believe? That's not to say that they don't look like, because they do...but call me old fashioned because I still prefer paper over plastic.

    $10,000 USD in 1934 is equivalent to $171,188.06 in 2012.

    Those look pretty cool but for me swiss franks are still classy and sexy at the same time.

    They look awesome, being waterproof and such.

    Other than that I don't care if they never come over here. I rarely have cash on me.
    You really have to try hard to find a shop or service that doesn't take cards over here.

    You got to love the €500 euro note though, that's like $635 or £400. That's a lot of money on a single piece of paper.

    not that litteral sense.
    During the depression people had to spend lots to get very little in return just like in Germany of the same era people were litterally burning money to keep them warm.
    i thought perhaps it was a similar situation in USA what other need of such a large note is there.

    As a cashier, this would make it easier for us to spot counterfeits. Those are some nice bills and I would like to see something similar in the US personally.

    No, that wasn't the case for the USA. The value of the dollar didn't change much. It was just that people didn't have any money to live off of.
