The Bank of Canada has announced that its new polymer notes will now also cover the $5 and $10 denominations. The new, more durable banknotes will carry "the same leading-edge security features as the $20, $50 and $100 polymer notes already in circulation" and will sport "a sophisticated combination of transparency and holography" making them "the most secure bank note series ever issued by the Bank of Canada." Above, the $10 specimen as seen on the Bank of Canada's Flickr gallery.

Theme: The Canadian train
The expansion of the railway in the 1880s was hailed as a remarkable feat of engineering for a young country with a varied and often treacherous terrain. At the time, the railway was the longest ever built, and its completion demonstrated Canada’s pioneering spirit by linking our eastern and western frontiers, connecting people, and facilitating the exchange of goods. Today, The Canadian train, winding its way through the Rockies showcases Canada’s natural beauty and symbolizes what we accomplished as a young nation.
