Canadian Business has an excellent article on counterfeit Canadian currency. Wesley Weber, a University of Windsor dropout, is described as “the man who crippled the $100 bill”.

The Bank of Canada introduced a new $100 bill in January. I haven’t seen it. The new $20 bill should be out by the end of the month, though, with the same new features.

Australian bills made of polymer instead of paper are mentioned. Has anyone seen them?
