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.

Quick and easy to foreign currency by mail

Quick and easy to receive foreign currency by mail within two business days. They also buy back what you don’t use. The currency was in pristine condition by the way. In most countries currency is not accepted if torn, too worn, with any writing or stamp printed on it or if missing corners.
