    The color doesn't do much if you're blind. The braille currency might look good on paper, but how long does it retain it's form?

    Once it's in circulation for a while or in a mans wallet, I would think they would eventually be flattened anyways.


    I kind of disagree with the term discriminatory here. It's more of an issue that could be addressed to further aid the handicapped. It's not like braille money is intentionally not done to discriminate.

    Do foot pedals in a car discriminate against people with no feet or the ability to use them?

    Do all restaurants that don't have braille menus discriminate?

    I think they're little implants (pounce cajun!) because I can feel it just as well on a new bill as an older one.

    I can personally vouch for the fact that you can feel it on an older one.

    Couldn't help but notice that most countries have important people or monuments or buildings or something that they put on their money.

    Is it true that nothing important has come out of Canada, that they were forced to just put a snapshot of kid's playing hockey on the money?
