In The Money

14 September 2017 to 2 April 2018

In The Money explores the science of note-based currency—starting with the earliest paper money printed in China—ranging from mulberry paper to cotton and linen rag and, ultimately, the polymer material used for Canada’s latest series of bank notes. This exhibition highlights the initiative, inventiveness and skill that have made today’s bank notes easy to use and difficult to counterfeit.
