The New Canadian $20 Bill

A plastic version of Canada’s most popular bill will be officially issued by the Bank of Canada in a ceremony Wednesday November 7th.

The new $20 polymer bills pay tribute to the military and features the Canadian National Vimy Memorial on the back of the note.

The popularity of the $20 bill makes it a target for counterfeiting, a practice the BoC is battling. First they introduced the new $100, and $50 polymer bills, now the $20. They further announced there will be a new edition of the $10 but might leave the $5 bills.
