I had also read an article about it last fall, I think Sara posted about it but I had interputed it to mean that they were changing the color of the bills from what I read then. I read an article on Money.com today and they made it look like it was just going to have subtle colors in them, I hope that is how they end up. I just hate to think about using blue 10s or pink 50s, it really would look like Monopoly money then .
I am with you Melissa, I am just getting used to the Big Head bills. Money.com said that they would be doing an overhaul of the bills every 7 years or so to try to stay ahead of the counterfeiters.
Sara, you probably already know we have dollar coins, both for the $1 and for the $2, called the loonie and toonie. We no longer have the $1 dollar bill, nor the $2 dollar bill.
Most Canadians have gotten use to the coins, BUT they are a hassle. Wallets will only hold a few and then you can't close them because it just gets too bulky with all the change. Pockets (especially men's) get holes in them very quickly. Change wallets can only hold so much change.
They are bulky when you have pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters, toonies and loonies as change. I would prefer the dollar bills.
