The Government wants to know: “What’s in Your Wallet?”
Did you know that the Canadian $1 bill was replace by the coin on this day, April 20th, in 1989?
Despite the passage of time, there is an estimated 151.6 million of these paper bills still around.
So if you have been hanging on to some in hopes of making a fortune when you retire, I would suggest you also have a Plan B in mind.
This is where the government steps in.
Yes, you can still save your banknotes and enjoy them, but as of 2018, if you use them as cash, financial institutes are required by law to return them to the Bank of Canada.
If you do collect money, why not display the more unique pieces so you can enjoy them, like Albert.
I framed up his uncut sheet of dollar bills with a very simple timeless presentation (Double mat/double v-groove) so that it shows off the bills and can easily fit into a feature wall with other collectibles.
Not only has it become a great piece of artwork, it also is a unique conversation starter.
How many of us have old uncut banknotes?
Why hide your collectibles away in boxes?
If you have a real valuable piece and are reluctant to display it in full view, why not get it professional photographed, enlarged and frame the photo? You can have it both ways, enjoy it everyday and still have the original safeguarded.
Show Me The Money!
(and of course the chocolate . . . for those who know me well, always show me the chocolate)
