The Good, the Bad, and the Fake - New exhibition to be unveiled at the Bank of Canada Currency Museum



    OTTAWA, March 5 /CNW Telbec/ - On Thursday, 6 March 2008, at 14:00 ET,
the Bank of Canada Currency Museum will unveil The Good, the Bad, and the
Fake - a new, youth-oriented exhibition about counterfeiting and how to tell
the difference between real and counterfeit paper money.

    
    About the Exhibit

        In a comic-strip format, the exhibition tells the story of Zoe and
        Dave-teenagers who find a bag of money in an alley. At first, they
        think they're rich, but the money turns out to be counterfeit-just
        worthless paper. Throughout the exhibit, Zoe and Dave learn some
        valuable tips about how to use the many security features found on
        Canada's paper money to help identify fake bills-a valuable skill to
        have as these teens enter the workforce.

    Who?

        Members of the press and the public are invited to view the new
        exhibition and to put their counterfeit-detection skills to the test.
