New $20s hit the streets Wednesday
Nov 5, 2012 / 1:27 pm
Representatives from the Bank of Canada will be in Kelowna Wednesday to introduce the new $20 polymer bank note.
The new bills, the most widely used of all Canadian bank notes, will go in circulation that day.
Simultaneous ceremonies are being held regionally across the country to unveil the note, which pays tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of Canadian men and women in all military conflicts.
The new $20 bill features the Canadian National Vimy Memorial.
The ceremony in Kelowna, which includes Bank of Canada and National Defence representatives, will be held at the Brigadier Angle Armoury at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.
The Bank of Canada issued the $100 bank note in November 2011, followed by the $50 note in March 2012.
The remaining bank notes in the series, the $5 and $10 notes, will be unveiled and issued by the end of 2013.
