加拿大联邦政府在2月27日公布财政预算中要求,将取消加拿大央行不再发行的多种面额纸币的法定货币状态,这些纸币面额分别为1000元、500元、25元、2元和1元。这些纸币的法定货币地位被取消后,将无法进行购物,但可以存入银行,加拿大央行将按照其面额进行兑换。

根据加拿大央行数据,到2017年底,仍有超过10亿元的受影响纸币仍在流通,其中包括74万张面额为1000元的纸币,这些纸币的最后发行时间为2000年5月份;只有40张面额为500元的纸币还在流通。

由于这些受影响的纸币都已停止发行,因此在市面上很少看到。

加拿大央行表示,取消上述纸币的流通性的原因之一是新纸币具有更好的安全特征,难以伪造。

Have you seen Canada’s $1,000 banknotes?

The Federal Government of Canada announced in its February 27 budget that it will cancel the legal currency status of various denomination notes issued by the Bank of Canada, which are denominated in 1,000 yuan, 500 yuan, 25 yuan, 2 yuan and 1 yuan respectively. . After the legal currency status of these notes is cancelled, they will not be able to make purchases, but they can be deposited in the bank and the Bank of Canada will exchange them according to their denominations.

According to the Bank of Canada, by the end of 2017, more than one billion yuan of affected banknotes are still in circulation, including 740,000 banknotes with a face value of 1,000 yuan. The final issue date of these banknotes was May 2000; there were only 40 cards. The banknote with a denomination of 500 yuan is still in circulation.

As these affected banknotes have ceased to be issued, they are rarely seen in the market.

The Bank of Canada stated that one of the reasons for canceling the circulation of the above banknotes is that the new banknotes have better security features and are difficult to counterfeit.
