What do you think of these new Bills?
Can't seem to tear them. Can Wash them. Feels like plastic though.
Some pretty cool security features!

Most casino chips are worth way more than coins!
Just remember plastic is no longer just for credit cards in Canada now!
Ya Dave they are definitely different resist melting (dryer) but will /shrink & melt with open flame.
Water/blue berry proof, but not indestructible.
No surprising, they did some significant testing on these new bills though.
Australia and New Zealand have had polymer currency for well over a decade.

I guess we are next probably. "Paying with plastic" will have a whole new meaning I guess.

Saw/held one last week. Kinda fake feeling, definitely will take some getting used to once all the bills are replaced.
