Canada Unveils New $100 Note Design
The Bank of Canada unveiled a new $100 bill that, besides a brand new design, boasts several security features as well.
The note is made from a single piece of polymer, has holographic images and portions of raised ink that makes the note harder to forge, according to the narrator of the video below.
Because the bill is plastic-based, they will last at least two-and-a-half times longer than a traditional cotton-based note, reports Digital Journal, citing the Bank’s Governor Mark Carney.
“Safer, cheaper greener: these banknotes are a 21st Century achievement in which all Canadians can take pride, and in which all Canadians can place their confidence,” Carney was quoted as saying.
