Features in the New Twenty
There are currently two types of Canadian currency circulating: new (2002 issued) and older (1986 issued).
The older currency includes denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, and $1000. There are dots (planchettes) randomly scattered on both sides of the notes. Place the tip of the Counter-Detect counterfeit detection UV Light at a 45° angle 5.5 cm away from a dot and shine. Genuine currency: the dot should glow florescent blue-green.
The new currency issues so far are only $5 and $10 notes. Turn to the front side where the face of the Canadian Prime Minister is and shine the Counter-Detect counterfeit detection UV Light at 45° angle at the forehead area. Hidden words should glow visible showing the denominations in English and French: For the $5, “FIVE CINQ”. For the $10, “DIX TEN”. In the area below these words there should be the Coat of Arms of Canada, followed by the words BANK OF CANADA BANQUE DU CANADA. See the image below.
“All (US) & Canadian bank notes have a number of security features that help make it easier to spot a fake. Always compare a suspect note to a note that you know is genuine. Look at the various security features and never rely on any single anti-counterfeiting measure to authenticate a bank note.” (Bank of Canada)
The new Euro currency features unique sizes and colors for each denomination. The more the bill is worth, the larger the bill. All Euros feature a security thread which glows under UV light.
