Spock Canadian $5 Bills Cash In as Tributes to Leonard Nimoy

By    |   Tuesday, 03 Mar 2015 09:27 AM

Star Trek fans are drawing Mr. Spock, the character that made American actor Leonard Nimoy famous, on Canadian currency as a tribute to the late actor, who died on Friday.

The Canadian Press reported that while defacing currency is a federal offense in the U.S., it's perfectly legal in Canada — a fact the Bank of Canada confirmed Monday. That's good news for those "Spocking" Wilfrid Laurier, the country’s seventh prime minister, with a bowl cut and Vulcan ears on the $5 bill.

The funny-money tradition is an old one, but saw a resurgence after fans began uploading pictures of their "Spocked" bills to social media sites like Twitter upon Nimoy's death.

Gathered below is a sampling of the fun (including a few U.S. examples).
