Thanks for the link AZ; I have added the front of the $50 note to my original post.  :)

I've actually e-mailed the Bank of Canada about the omission of Canada's Coat of Arms on the new series.  I find this to be just about as scandalous as the Devil's Face controversy with the 1954 series (for you trivia buffs, was coincidentally the first series that featured the Coat of Arms)!

Am I alone here??

In these news articles, there's an image of the real note it appears... the colour seems to be a lot lighter than the version posted on the BoC website.

I am really glad to see a counter returning to the top right corner of the face side.  That's the first place I look when I open my wallet.

Makes perfect sense... I expected prefixes EKA-EKZ to be released after EJA-EJZ. Looks like as many as 220 million polymer hundreds may have been printed already (unless of course the new prefixes have not been used sequentially from (EK)A to (EK)Z).

This link shows the back of the new note. 

http://www.radio-canada.ca/nouvelles/Economie/2011/06/20/017-billets-polymere-canada.shtml

The serial number is EKZ9351553.  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...

At least, we have an idea of the prefix in which the new serie begins...

Watch the video

CHECK OUT the above video at 2 Minutes into the video.... Thats the coolest part to me of the new notes. There's a security feature you won't know about until you see the video. Apparently if you shine a light through the maple leaf window a hidden design depicting the denomination will appear!

It is actually shown and explained on the BOC site :)



Always looking for #1 serial number notes in any denomination/any series

Yes i have noticed that too, the fifty is the same. I believe its the same fonts used from the Journey notes, there are some similarities.

I wonder if the actual notes will be exactly as pictured here?  If so, the BofC has done away with the:
-Canadian Coat of Arms :o ???
-Copyright notice
-Names of the buildings on the face of the notes
-Bar codes next to the serial numbers, and
-Year the notes were printed.

I could see the year of issue in the top right hand corner below the 100 on the front of the note. You can see it at around 56 seconds in to the Bank of Canada YouTube video. I personally think the new notes look great...not a radical departure from prior issues. I like the clear window areas of the notes.

The Bank of Canada's website shows good pics of the new 50 and 100 notes. The issue date is on the top right corner. For the 100 its got 2011 and 2012 for the $50. I have noticed on the reverse there is no signs of any "printed in 2011" like on the bottom of all Journey notes, did anyone else notice?

This feature appears to do the same thing as a Christmas novelty item that I have.  It's a pair of cardboard glasses, similar to the red-blue ones that come with 3-D comic books, but with clear lenses.  Put them on, and then look at any distant point of light, like a street lamp across the street at night.  An image of Santa appears like a halo around the light.  It doesn't work with close lights or in a brightly lit room.  The brighter and smaller the point, and the darker the background, the better the effect.
