Canadian Currency

My project is about our proud countries currency. I will talk all about the new bills and coins along with the old bills. Hope you enjoy!!!





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

An important lesson I have learned that I would like to share with my fellow Canadians is that our money is not just about BUYING. When you usually think of money, you think of BUYING and thats it. But, money is not just more then a piece of paper you use to buy, it has history and stories to share. My message to my fellow Canadians is to really think hard and appreciate it for not just its value or look, but for it past.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

The most interesting thing I learned about in my project was the old currency. From the design to the history, its just amazing how cool they are. Every bill has its own story to share with the world and I, personally, suggest that you go and learn these stories to share with others.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

In my project, I would compare and relate to the Government of Canada back then. The old bills were found to cost lots if money, which made the government pay. If they had not have changed the material to cost less, now, the government might nit have had even money to pay the people. Hence my parents may not have got payed and me and my family not having some essentials for life including food, electricity and water.
