About the Canadian Dollar

The Canadian Dollar was invented in the early 1800’s and is the official currency of Canada.  It is the seventh most traded currency in the world. The most popular Canadian Dollar exchange is the USD to CAD rate.

In Pre-colonial Canada, various objects such as shells, glass beads and animal furs were used as means of trade. Even after the area became New France, pieces of playing cards were often accepted as legal tender when currency became scarce.

In 2004 the Royal Canadian Mint released the world’s first coloured circulation coin which featured the Poppy, Canada’s flower of remembrance. The poppy coin is dedicated to all 117,000 Canadians who gave their lives while in the nation’s service.

  • Coins are issued in denominations of 1¢, 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, 50¢, $1, and $2 and the banknotes issued in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100.
  • It is abbreviated with the Dollar sign $, or C$ to distinguish it from other Dollar-denominated currencies.
