4. Me too!

I loved the colorful British notes when we live there (3 years in the early 90's). The only thing I disliked was the fact that they wouldn't fit neatly into American billfolds.

5. Better yet, American bills with a woman "of color"

on the colored currency.

6. Cool!

We don't get to have nice things like that here.

Canadian money has art and POETRY on it!

7. Speaking of Canadian money ...

Viola Desmond (1914–1965) an icon for civil rights in Canada, has been selected by the Minister of Finance to be featured on Canada’s next regularly circulating $10 banknote, expected to enter circulation late in 2018. The reverse side of the note will depict symbols and images that represent the broader themes of social justice and the struggle for rights and freedoms.
