On another note you can have one in your pocket and go for a swim. It will be the exact same after. Try that with paper.

Hi folks, OPer here. Thank you so much for correcting the misinformation I received at my bank. RV.net members are truly informed and thankfully, willing to share! [emoticon]

As a public service, I will store and caretake your Canadian currency, here in the cooler temps of Canada's far north.

Please send without a self-addressed stamped envelope.

And to preserve your privacy and ensure I don't sell your personal data, please don't tell me who you are.

We always tell people on here to buy their Canadian currency when they actually get to Canada, as there is much more currency exchanged in Canada and normally the rates are better.
As a matter of interest, what rate did you actually pay?

I just checked my 11 $100 plastic Canadian bills left in my camper from last year as they are intact and not melted -whew- , now I can plan on spending a few of them starting in Dawson City within a couple days.

Sue, that post looks like one of those typical automated Nigerian email scams a lot of RV.Net members seem to get when they post their spam messages they receive under the campfire [emoticon]

That was funny LOL.

I have heard the old saying that money just burns a hole in the pocket of some people. Probably true. But never had any problem with Canadian currency melting. LOL But I have had some issues with it cracking. Most of the time I don't carry a wallet, just fold my money, stuff my driver's license, a credit card and a debit card inside, all secured with a money clip. I suspect it is the lower/lesser rag content of the Canadian bills that will cause them to crack at the fold, at times. Then when I go to pull one out of the money clip, at times I only get half of the bill and have to tape it back together. Wouldn't be a problem, I guess if I carried them in a wallet and not folded with the fold pressed tight.

Anyway with that slight difference, the main problem I have with Canadian money, even before the switch over to the new bills, is that it tends to disappear on me, too quickly. Just gone in a few days. Wonder how long a person will have to save their Canadian pennies, before they become rare and valuable? Or perhaps the US could buy all the unused Canadian pennies from the Canadian mint at face value. I understand it now costs more to make a penny than the face value of it. May be time for the US to drop the penny as well.
