In the Money

In the Money

 

In The Money explores the science of note-based currency—starting with the earliest paper money printed in China—ranging from mulberry paper to cotton and linen rag and, ultimately, the polymer material used for Canada’s new series of bank notes. This exhibition highlights the initiative, inventiveness and skill that have made today’s bank notes easy to use and difficult to counterfeit.

Featuring interactive stations and displays with fascinating facts and insights, In The Money provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of modern methods for developing, testing and producing secure, innovative bank notes.

This exhibition is on loan from the Currency Museum
