Currency Information on Canadian Dollar - CAD — Canadian Dollar - $
Canadian dollars are divided into 100 cents, and preface the ‘$’ sign with a C to distinguish it from other currencies of the same symbol.
The fifth most reserved currency in the world, Canadian dollars account for 2% of the world’s reserves. Canada is considered very stable, in terms of politics, economy and legal system, and its currency is therefore popular with central banks.
Frequently used Canadian banknotes are; $5, $10, $20 and $50. $100 notes are used infrequently. Frequently used coins; 5, 10 and 25 cents and $1 and $2, 50 cent coins are infrequent in use.
When I was looking to retire to France a year ago I was in need of transferring money in order to pay the deposit on my retirement flat. Compare Money Transfer helped me find the best rates and the best deals – a great service if like me you are not familiar with the financial goings on of the currency markets.
