Canada unveils new 5 and 10 dollar on 30 April 2013

The Bank of Canada will unveil the last two banknotes of the new series, the 5 and 10 dollar, on 30 April 2013. This was already known but now there is more news regarding the themes of the new notes. The news from the official website:

Canada’s new $5 and $10 bank notes – the final notes in the Polymer series, will be unveiled during an official ceremony at the Bank of Canada’s head office in Ottawa on Tuesday, 30 April 2013 at 12:15 (Eastern Time).

Joining Governor Mark Carney to speak at the event will be Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty, Paul G. Smith, Chairman of the Board of VIA Rail Canada, and a representative from the Canadian Space Agency.

At the conclusion of the event, Minister Flaherty, Governor Carney, Mr. Smith and a Canadian Space Agency representative will participate in a photo opportunity with the new $5 and $10 polymer notes. Members of the media will also have an opportunity to meet with representatives from the Bank of Canada, VIA Rail Canada and the Canadian Space Agency to learn more about the themes, as well as the security and durability features, of the new bills.

Seeing who are invited for the photo opportunities (somebody from VIA Rail Company and somebody from the Canadian Space Agency) you can pretty much guess what the themes of the new banknotes will be. The colours are also almost sure: blue for the 5 dollar and purple for the 10 dollar. The new notes will be put into circulation at the end of 2013.
