This exhibition allowed visitors to experience the creative process, the technical skill and the sheer artistry that underlies every series of Canadian stamps and bank notes, from concept to final product. Original art, printing plates, videos, interactives, rare stamps, and money—lots of money—awaited visitors in this fun, informative and enriching look into the beauty and intricacy of Canadian stamps and bank notes.
Aimed at youth, families and adults, this exhibition was rich with artifacts and hands-on interactives and was accompanied by school and general programming. Visitors had the chance to design their own currency or stamps, reproduce the beautifully elaborate patterns of classic bank notes and browse through a millennium’s worth of engravers and engraving history
