The long-awaited Canadian
sequel to WheresGeorge.com
, a website devoted to tracking the progress of American currency (bills). This site allows you to enter the serial number
and series of your Canadian currency
so that its progress can be tracked all around the great nation of Canada
. The site also encourages you to mark your bills
with the website address, though in a "reasonable and prudent manner". This way, "hits" are generated when the new owner of the bill travels to the site and enters the same bill serial and series into the database. A very interesting idea, indeed.
"Willy", of course, refers to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the first French Canadian Prime Minister. Laurier held office from 1896 to 1911 and his portrait is on the Canadian $5 bill. The bird on the $5 bill is the Belted Kingfisher.
