I won't be a bit surprised if the $20 is an equally bland, dull, and a lifeless swampy shade of green.

It can't be any worse than the Birds $20. That note's colour scheme was dreadful. Probably the ugliest note the BoC ever issued.

I think the whole Birds of Canada series was the worst series the BoC ever issued...Until I saw the polymer Frontiers series.  Seriously, a space themed $5? an icebreaker on the $50?!? blah! ::)

Maybe I will finally be able to appreciate one of the new anti counterfeiting notes, as my Grand father was with the 58th battalion of the 3rd Division. They did not paticipate in the battle but were kept in reserve. I really don't like the new notes.

Naked women! I wonder what was said about the back of the 1937 $20 (or the 1935 $500) note back then. Think it was a controversial allegory? What about the Cenotaph in Ottawa? There are some naked women on that! Could be why the Journey 10 didn't have the top of the memorial - because it was too pornographic.

Bank Note Counterfeiting

Cash is a popular means of payment and that creates opportunities for counterfeiters. Canadian bank notes have security features that are easy to check and hard to counterfeit. However, polymer and paper bank notes are secure only if you check these features. This video helps you verify bank notes, and informs cash handlers how to deal with suspicious notes.
