Voices from the Engraver

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. Reproductions of original art, printing plates, tools, rare stamps and money – lots of money – are waiting for you 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 light version of the artifact-rich traveling exhibition features hands-on interactives and is accompanied by school and general programming. Re-produce the beautifully elaborate patterns of classic bank notes and browse through a millenium’s worth of engravering history.
