A deep dive on Canadian dollars
Back in 1821, the Montreal Bank issued the first notes. 20 years later, the first Canadian pounds were born. However by 1858, the Canadian dollar was issued to more closely align with the US dollar, and the Bank of Canada’s first banknotes came along in 1934. In 2011 Canada began to produce a more duarble plymer note similar to those used in Australia.

The most commonly used Canadian dollar bills are the $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. There are also $500 and $1000 notes, but these aren’t seen often because of their high value.
