Share This Story!

You might handle it nearly every day, but how often do you actually look at it? We’re talking about money, of course. Canada’s bills and coins may preoccupy us because of their worth, but they’re also rich in symbols and Canadian history.

Canada didn’t even print its money within the country until 1908. Until then, our money was printed in England. However, since 1908, we’ve been minting up a storm, creating several versions of all of our coins and bills, not to mention special commemorative editions. So take our quiz and see how much you know about Canadian cash—and no peeking at the change in your pocket for clues!
