Here are the images of sheets and individual notes on the BoC Flicker page:

The prefix is CDF.

Very nice looking note. They did a great job! Look forward to seeing these in circulation. Surprised to see prefix CDF would have expected FFA- .

Yes, but C is the printer letter for BAI, and they no longer print Canadian notes. Of course, it is possible that this letter is now used by CBN. Also, as 40 million commemorative $10 notes have been printed, their first prefix is likely not CDA, as CDA-CDF would be close to 60 million notes. Another mystery.

What a messy design. Too much crammed on the note. Not the best effort.

I love the new note! I was expecting another hologram variation, so this is an unexpected surprise!

I like the new note too, especially the security features. The window is very attractive, similar to that on the latest New Zealand notes, but it is Kinegram stripe rather than patch, going edge to edge. Note that the 3D silver leaves are a part of the stripe. It is also good to see the blue-green SPARK patch as well, it is a common feature on many modern banknotes.

For the information on the Kinegram and SPARK security features, see the following links:

Just for fun try this on the Bank of Canada site (www.bankofcanada.ca/banknotes/banknote150/):

follow these instructions (without the commas)
Use the arrow keys: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right
then: b,a

It's raining money!

Ha ha, that's hilarious. It also plays a cheesy organ rendition of O Canada. The Konami code <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami_Code> makes it to the Bank of Canada. How did you discover that?
