There is no doubt, however, that plastic money was first created in America. It is commonly referred to as the Credit Card. But don't worry, you still corner the market on Kangaroos, platypuses and Animal experts who get killed by sting rays.

I went to local bank today to exchange U.S. currency for Canadian for our upcoming RV trip through Canada to Alaska. As I was preparing to exit the bank, the teller mentioned to me NOT to leave the new Canadian currency in the glove box of a vehicle or a hot camper because it was made of plastic and it would melt and that would render it unusable and of ZERO value.

Just what I need is a fist full of useless plastic! [emoticon] Is it true that these new Canadian bills will melt in hot environments and have any of my fellow RVers had issues with them?

It will melt if subjected to very high temperatures,
So after washing clothes check theres none inside the pockets before putting these in the clothes dryer!
That would be the only high temps that it may get accidentally exposed to imo

I hope you arent foolish enough to leave any money in the glove box..


Don't think clothes dryers go to 246'F!!!!!!! That would be a roaring fire!!!!!


Never argue with an idiot. You will be dragged down to their level and then beaten with experience.

Its nowhere near hot enough for money to melt in a glove box or trailer in Canada [emoticon]

No woven plastic money developed in Australia , Canada was one of the first to use the technologyP

The toonie is also known as the Queen with a bear behind. While Queen Elizabeth is on the front there is a bear on the backside.

I'm betting that this a take off from an old Benny Hill sketch where he is in the 'stocks' for having 'wicked thoughts'. An attractive Puritan girl is talking to him and says, " Oh no, I would never go walking in the forest with all those animals, can you imagine me walking with a bear behind".

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.


I can't believe you are still using dollar bills.
