A deep dive on Canadian dollars

Back in 1821, the Montreal Bank issued the first notes. 20 years later, the first Canadian pounds were born. However by 1858, the Canadian dollar was issued to more closely align with the US dollar, and the Bank of Canada's first banknotes came along in 1934. In 2011 Canada began to produce a more duarble plymer note similar to those used in Australia.

More info on Canadian dollars

The most commonly used Canadian dollar bills are the $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills. There are also $500 and $1000 notes, but these aren't seen often because of their high value.

Bill size

I would like the ability to control the maximum size bill. A 100 Euro bill is hard to spend.

My Travelex card worked well when there…

My Travelex card worked well when there was money on it, but I was never able to reload the card via the app, which made it challenging. (I also had to reload it via the website on an iPad each time, which still worked but wasn't as quick and easy as the app would have been.)
