This new note is being rolled out gradually and will circulate alongside the other $10 polymer notes, including the Canada 150 commemorative note and the Frontiers series $10, until they need to be replaced. As the new regularly circulating $10 bank note, the vertical $10 will be produced by the Bank of Canada for years to come.
The new $10 bank note, with depictions of Viola Desmond and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, acknowledges the past and continuing efforts towards achieving rights and social justice for all Canadians.
The Bank has been working with financial institutions and bank note equipment manufacturers to minimize the impact of this note on the cash-handling industry. The new $10 note maintains the same suite of machine-readable features as the current polymer notes. The note is printed on the same substrate, the large transparent window is in the same position and the same size, and the opaque border of the window is maintained.
