That depends on what it looks like.

Check to make sure it's not counterfeit first.  Poor counterfeit notes do not perform well under UV light, but may fool the naked eye under normal light.

If it's a real note, it may simply have picked up some kind of substance that is UV-bright.  I believe bleach is, so if the note was in the laundry, it might exhibit what you describe, although I've not tried this myself.

If you take a picture of it under UV light, try to avoid using a flash if possible.  It might drown out the UV light source.  I am eager to see what you are seeing :D

There are lots of security features on our banknotes... Here's a link explaining them all.

http://www.bankofcanada.ca/en/banknotes/counterfeit/security/index05_2001-04.html

I encourage you to check it out and learn about all of the security features found on Canadian money.  The general public is far too uneducated about them, and combined with the fact that few people bother to perform even the simplist of checks, that means that a lot of fakes get by very easily.

 At least you are looking at paper money. When I started I used to look at rolls and rolls of pennies and nickels. Paper is much easier to carry.

Very interesting.  I would suggest getting in touch with Tom here on the forums and perhaps arranging for him to have a look at it in person.
