Canadians Continue To Honor Leonard Nimoy By Marking Their Currency

File this one under unintentionally poignant Leonard Nimoy tributes.

The idea of "Spocking Fives" was already a thing in Canada, as io9.com's Cheryl Eddy points out.

The country's five-dollar bill features Sir Wilfrid Laurier, a former prime minister and Leonard Nimoy look-a-like.

His uncanny resemblance drove our more humorous cousins north of the border to alter the bill and make it look as if Nimoy's famous character, Spock, is on the front of the note.

Indeed, "Spocking Fives" has long been an idea of Canadian fascination. And, in the wake of Nimoy's death, it has taken on a whole new level of significance.

It's safe to say these are collectors' items.
