Canada’s new $20, $50, and $100 notes bills have been printed with the wrong maple leaves.
According to plant experts the new notes feature Norway maple leaves instead of Canadian sugar maple leaves.
Canada’s maple leaf is present around the see-through plastic portion of each bills, but the partially see-through leaf in the body of the bill is clearly different.
Officials from the Bank of Canada say the leaf is a “stylized” version of the sugar maple leaf but a senior botanist at the Atlantic Canada Conservation Data Centre, Sean Blaney, said that the Bank of Canada’s statement is just an excuse.
There are already 400 million of the new bills in circulation with 1.2 billion more bills still to come.
The leaf on the left is a Norway maple leaf and the leaf on the right is a Canadian sugar maple leaf.
Do you think they are very similar or very different?
