The Montreal Bank issued the first notes in 1821 and 20 years later the first Canadian Pounds were issues. However, by 1858, the Canadian Dollar was issued to more closely align with the US Dollar.
The first banknotes issued by the Bank of Canada came along in 1934. In 2011 Canada began to produce a more durable polymer note similar to those used in Australia.
The most commonly used denominations are: 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100.

My experience of Travelex
The Travelex credit card I purchased worked perfectly and so was highly convenient. I found that topping it up via the Travlex website was straightforward. I appreciate a good product and good service which made my travel considerably less stressful - once I had tried the card and fohnd it worked!Kyle Ralph Wilson

The idea of ordering money online was quite easy but I did not receive a notification when my cash was ready to collect and I had to follow up. The cash had bee delivered 2 days earlier than original planned which meant my post office was about to send it back. Thankfully they hadn't sent it back or else that could have caused major inconvenience when our trip is only a few days awayMishSimpson
Great service, quick turnaround - my order was ready 3 days before my allocated pick up day. Competitive rate.Nat
