Picking up where I left off yesterday, this sheet of thousand dollar Canadian bills certainly caught my eye. The denomination is no longer in circulation.
Older Canadian denominations are organized here.
While these are more recent.
One of the hands on activities for kids around here is making your own currency. I decided to have a go, adding 'Kilroy was here' as a signature. The Bank of Mugsy is in good shape and unlike Deutsche Bank was not handling money for the Trump campaign before the election. We do have some standards. :)
The designed currency can be sent to one's email, so of course I did that. Here are both sides.
This is the opposite side of that oversized five dollar bill I showed you.
Turning around, I photographed this view of what was to come.
The new Viola Desmond ten dollar bill is the first vertical bill to go into circulation in Canada, but it's not quite the first of its kind. A proposed series back in 2000 was meant to feature animals- in this case moose- in a vertical fashion on the one side, with a horizontal conventional portrait on the other. The decision was made at the time by the Finance Minister not to go ahead with the series, as it had only been recently that a series of currency bills had been issued into general circulation with a bird theme. I came back a couple of days after my visit to get some clarifications and a couple of shots of this one on the display screen, and chatted with one of the museum staff about this rejected series of bills, as well as one related to the American Civil War, which will turn up in tomorrow's post.
