2010.11 | Paper or Plastic…Cash?

A customer sent me an article last week highlighting Canada’s plans to shift our paper money to leverage polymer in the 2011 timeframe.  

For retailers this means potential changes to counterfeit detection, and firmware updates for automatic cash acceptors.  On the upside, it also means cash that can last four times longer in circulation, and a more difficult note to copy.

Australia, New Zealand and seven other countries are using polymer based banknotes as of 2009.
