I find a bit strange that the font used to print the serial seems very similar to the one used in the Journey's Serie...

The font used is OCR-B, which is an international standard open-source machine readable font.  You will see the same font on nearly any item in the grocery store on the UPC code.  I predict that OCR-B will continue to be the serial number font for quite some time.

I was able to get my hands on a few of the new $100 polymer notes. A nice note overall.

Okay ElwoodBlues, you can't dangle a piece of info like that and not tell the rest of the story.  :)

How/where did you get one?  Did you get to keep it?  MORE INFO!!!!!!

The BoC said the new theme is Frontiers.  Would that not make the most sense...the Frontier Series?

Works for me.  Calling them the polymer notes works for the time being, but in another decade or so...we'll be searching for another name.

Just wonder if the front & back position numbers on this note are in line with the existing SNDB matrix.

$20      The Canadian National Vimy Memorial—evokes the contributions and sacrifices of Canadians in conflicts throughout our history. (Portrait: HM Queen Elizabeth II)

$10      The Canadian train—represents Canada’s great technical feat of linking its eastern and western frontiers by what was, at the time, the longest railway ever built. (Portrait: Sir John A. Macdonald)

$5        Canadarm2 and Dextre—symbolize Canada’s continuing contribution to the international space program through robotics innovation. (Portrait: Sir Wilfrid Laurier)


I am interested in seeing what the $10 note will actually look like :)

I heard that the production of new $20 bills is delayed because of a design change.  They're going with images of the Vancouver hockey night riots instead  :D

I made an interesting observation:  the sipover of the serials:

I made a cut and an enlargment (about 150%) of a "printcreen" in the earlier part on the video:

Here the serials one can see:

(EKZ8)541069
EKZ8549069
EKZ8557069

So the skipover seems to be 8000 from one note to the lower next note. 

The layout is 5 x 9 notes=45 notes per sheet.

8000 x 45 = 360000 notes per run..

Yes I did get my hand on a few, but I had to give them back  :'(
I went to the press release, and there were actual notes that were available to handle.
Ii did ask if there would be a date for an exchange of old for new, and at the time there is not, they will be available through the banks when they are released.

wish they would have put the train on the $5 as the 1912 $5 bill is a favorite and with the new $5 coming out in 2012 nice 100 year anniversary

Well, this seems to be consistent with the existing numbering patterns, so hopefully there aren't too many surprises.

Just a reminder to all, once the new series comes out, it will be very important to add your notes to the SNDB. Using all of this information, we can quickly keep on top of things and figure out what's going on in terms of numbering, etc.
