Canada rolls out polymer bank notes, feature robot arms

Canada has brought technology to their currency as well. Their cool new $5 and $10 polymer bank notes seem to be quite the talk of town. Besides being among the most secured bills that the country has ever produced, the new polymer notes also show off Canada’s famous robot arms on the $5 bill. It portrays a picture of Canadarm2 and Dextre, robotic arms that were used in part to construct and further maintain the International Space Station. Commander Hadfield who unveiled the new bill design stated that the bill should be a proud testimony of the country’s phenomenal achievements in space. The advantage of the polymer bills is that they prove to be absolutely potent with the use of holography. Additionally, they are also a lot more durable than regular bills.

Both, the $5 and $10 bills are expected to roll out among the masses by November. These are the final entrants in the new series of bills that have already seen their $20, $50 and $100 renditions rolling.
