Canada presents new 5 and 10 dollar

The Bank of Canada unveiled the design for the new 5 and 10 dollar banknotes yesterday 30 April 2013. Like the rest of the series they're made of polymer. Below are the designs and more details on the banknotes itself. In my humble opinion they look absolutely stunning! When they're issued in November 2013 they would make a nice birthday present... (wink wink). Because of the space theme of the 5 dollar note, the note was unveiled from the International Space Station.

The 5 dollar note highlights Canada’s technological achievements and contributions to the international space program. The 10 dollar note depicts the joining of the East and West of Canada by rail.
