    Default Foreign polymer currency

    I am interested in collecting polymer bank notes from around the world. Wondering if anyone know a good source.

    Man, I hate the stuff. It feels like Tyvek home wrap and has a tendency for the bills to stick together when they are not busy sliding around. They switched our bank notes over to polymer a few years ago. Your bank should be able to get you foreign currency.

    That's crazy. I have vegetarian relatives in the U.K. I wonder if they are trying to go cashless.

    I wish they did that here so our notes wouldn't stick or slide around. Oddly enough the change over to polymer bank notes started during the term of Mark Carney as Governor of The Bank of Canada and who is presently the Governor of the Bank of England. I wonder if that is just a coincidence?

    I pondered mostly in jest but could be. I'll say one thing for Mark Carney as the Governor of the Bank of Canada, we did well by him. He took over February of 2008 at the start of the global financial meltdown managing us to a better than average outcome.
