Thoughts on the new bills design? I must say that side part looks very elaborate but why is the "Canada" font so ugly?

I actually like the font. Everything about this bill looks very modern. I think it looks cool for Canada, but if we came out with a bill like this, I would flip. And not it a good way. Call me old-fashioned, I know. ;)

I got these $100 bills the other day when I went to take rent out for my landlady.I was surprised to receive them they are very different,they feel so strange.My poor landlady has mascular degenerative disease(loss of vision) and had to get out this giant lighted magnifying glass to check it out.If you couldn't see and felt that you wouldn't believe its money!

Freaky! on Nov 30, 2011 @ 12:14 pm

I find these bills so freaky- they look so realistic and life like!!!

I'm not a huge fan of the font- it looks very retro to me and reminds me of the font I used on my powerpoint slides in high school.

Having lived in Canada, Europe, and now the US, I like what I'm seeing! Canada has always had prettier currency than the US (you know it's true!), and ever since the Euro was launched with its detailed bills, I was hoping Canada would step up its game.

Sure, the font is a little tame, but I wouldn't want it to be too scrolly or futuristic either. I like the simplicity of the design.

new bills. on Nov 30, 2011 @ 05:42 pm

I saw one of these at work the other day. I think they are definitely different and kind of neat. The look and feel is definitely something different. At at least our bills will still be colourful, Ive always like that about them.

I think it looks cool, anything to try and keep counterfeiters at bay. But I think this is the design that apparently some people have said contains what looks like sexual images, I for one do not see it and well I guess it's all in the eyes of the beholder.

very cool on Jan 06, 2012 @ 09:20 pm

The stripe at the side is transparent! It's very weird! And they do feel strange. I didn't even want to bend the bills to put in my wallet... they were so new and crisp.

I actually just got one of these the other day!! ---they are so cool but at the same time, so weird since we are all not used to them..i DO like the transparent part :) Before we know it, all of our bills will be this and we'll be so used to them lol just like when we changed to what our bills were before these :P

I haven't .. on Jan 07, 2012 @ 10:07 am


gotten one yet, but I like how they look. I heard all of our
bills will be like this in time. It sure will make it harder for anyone to try
an counterfeit our money now.

I had a $20 the other day that felt strange and I know they haven't changed
that one yet. It felt more like paper then the cloth mix they make money out
of. It came right from the bank so it had to be real, it just felt very
strange. Even my son noticed how it felt strange and kids don't usually pay
that much attention to money, at least mine don't.
