New travelling exhibit “In the Money” at Resurgo Place
From the mulberry-based paper money of Ming Dynasty China to Canada’s shiny polymer notes

MONCTON — Resurgo Place is pleased to host In the Money, a bilingual travelling exhibit that will be on display until April 30, 2017. Come discover the initiative, inventiveness and skill that have made today’s bank notes easy to use and difficult to counterfeit. Access to the exhibit is included with the cost of admission.

Featuring interactive stations and displays with fascinating facts and insights, In the Money provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of modern methods for developing, testing and producing secure, innovative bank notes. 

Produced by the Bank of Canada Museum (Ottawa, ON), the exhibition explores the science of note-based currency. How is paper made? Can good engraving foil a counterfeiter? What are those little holograms for? How has high technology changed absolutely everything about how we manufacture our money? Answers abound in this fun and engaging exhibition, as does the opportunity to take an extremely close look at some very modern money. 

Resurgo Place will also hold a special event, in conjunction with the In the Money travelling exhibit and in collaboration with the Bank of Canada's regional office for the Atlantic Provinces.  Visitors will have a chance to examine a special commemorative bank note marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation before the Bank of Canada issues it into circulation later this year.  The design of this special $10 polymer note will be unveiled in early 2017 and the note will be broadly available in time for Canada Day.

Related programming will also be offered throughout the exhibit being on display.
Hours of operations are Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from 12-5 p.m. Resurgo Place is open until 8 pm on the last Thursday of every month.
