What won't melt in the dryer or harden in the winter? Why it's the new plastic money that Canada will start producing this November. The polymer bank notes will start replacing the paper-cotton bills that suffer wear and tear. The new bills feel smoother to the touch and are much harder to crumble but will fold if pressed. The new money will cost twice as much to produce as the old but the Bank of Canada expects that the new money will last 2 1/2 times longer.
Making the new bills this way will deter counterfeiters since they will have more security features such as metallic images in see-through windows. Of course at a time when the ecology is most important, the money will also be recyclable.
The new bills will begin production with the $100.00 bill, followed by circulation of the $50.00 bill in March of 2012. The remaining bills will be released by the end of 2013.
This picture brings a total decadence to my mind - a bath tub filled with money. This paper money floats. I wonder if the plastic will.
Good Night for now.
