Canadian Dollars (CAD)
The first bank notes in Canada were issued in the early 1800s by The Montreal Bank, and became the primary means of payment in British North America. The Canadian dollar was issued in 1958 and is now the official Canadian currency, although it has switched back and forth from floating freely to being pegged to the US dollar. It now floats freely and is the fifth most held currency in the world, and is a popular currency to trade in.
