*This denomination was revised in 1978. The red and blue serial numbers were removed from the face of the bank note and replaced by black serial numbers printed on the lower back of the bank note. The "Bank of Canada - Banque du Canada" inscription was removed from below the back vignette to provide a white background for the numbers.
