Canadian Five-Dollar Spock Banknotes Since at least 2009, pranksters in Canada have been 'Spock-ing' $5 banknotes as an ongoing practical joke. The portrait on the Canadian $5 bill actually is of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who served as Canada's prime minister from 1896 to 1911. Someone apparently realized there was a resemblance between Laurier and Mr. Spock from Star Trek. With a pencil or a black marker and a little artistic talent...Voila! You have a Spock-ed $5 bill! It is not a crime to deface Canadian banknotes, but officials at the Bank of Canada advise against it as it may make merchants reluctant to accept such bills and some people may find the gag disrespectful. Although there have been reports of renewed interest in the Spock-ed fives because of the recent death of Leonard Nimoy, the practice is doomed to extinction. The Bank of Canada unveiled a new-look $5 note in 2013 that uses a frontal view of Laurier's face rather than the more Spock-able profile. Moreover, the new $5 bills are printed on polymer--a surface which makes drawing on them more difficult.
