Bank of Canada Unveils New Polymer $5 And $10 Bills

 
 

CANADA - The Bank of Canada unveiled the new polymer $5 and $10 bills on Tuesday.

 

They will carry the same leading-edge security features as the $20, $50 and $100 polymer notes already in circulation.

 

The new $5 polymer note features images of Canadarm2 and Dextre - robotics innovations used to build and maintain the Space Station and that symbolize Canada’s ongoing contribution to the international space program. The front of the bill features a portrait of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Prime Minister of Canada from 1896 to 1911.

 

The new $10 note features a striking image of The Canadian train journeying through the Rocky Mountains, and represents the enormous feat of engineering that linked Canada’s East and West by rail. A portrait of Sir John A. Macdonald, who was Prime Minister of Canada (1867-1873, 1878-1891) at the time of the railway completion, is featured on the front of the note.

 

The notes are expected to be issued in November.
