Focus groups looking for potential controversy with the new Frontier Series of notes asked people for opinions on the new $50 and $100 notes.  This makes for an interesting study when compared to how people reacted to the Devil's Face notes of the 1954 series.  People said they saw women's bodies and sex toys on the new notes.

There is a very interesting statement near the end of the article...

Bank of Canada spokeswoman Julie Girard said the bills got tweaked after the focus groups.

"Before and after those focus groups, there were design changes for multiple reasons," she said.


Design changes?  Does this mean we might see two or more kinds of $100 notes in circulation?  :-\
