Canadian Money is Beautiful

For the past few years, the greenbacks here in the US have been undergoing surgery. New security features, a larger hunchback-like shape for Thomas Jefferson’s shoulder, and the like have given us a new way to look at these devices for obtaining goods and services. Yet, when reading an article about Canadian money at Speak Up I started feeling inadequate.

Go through the links and look at that Canadian money. It’s downright beautiful, flawed as it may be, compared to American cash. Ours seems boring and plain; Canada has a nice contemporary feel to its bills. I’ve not been to Canada and haven’t seen anything outside of the occasional Canadian quarter (and damn those things,) so this was pretty eye-opening.
