A deep dive on Canadian Dollars

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 duarble plymer note similar to those used in Australia.

More info about Canadian Dollars

The most commonly used bills in Canadian Dollars are the $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. There are also $500 and $1000 notes but these are not as often because of their high value.

The rate could be better

The rate could be better, but most exchanges in Australia don’t have that good rates. It was nice to be able to pick it up at an Australia Post.
