The new polymer $20 bank note was revealed last week by the Bank of Canada.

The most common note in circulation, the new, more durable note will join the previously released $100 and $50 notes as Canadian money becomes more durable and more difficult to counterfeit.

Canadians can now feel comfortable in the knowledge their money will not be destroyed should they forget it in their pocket when they jump in the water this summer.

Their cell phones, however, are another matter.
