Bank Note Series, 1935 to present

Commemorative Notes

A special commemorative $25 note bearing the date May 6, 1935, was issued in honour of the Silver Jubilee of King George V. Similar to the 1935 series this denomination was printed in English and French. The dates 1910-1935 appear at the top of the note and the inscription, TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ACCESSION OF H.M. KING GEORGE V, appears below the portrait.


In honour of the 100th anniversary of Confederation, a modified version of the 1954 $1 note was issued, bearing the date 1967. The centennial logo was added to the left side of the note's face and a view of Canada's original Parliament Buildings, destroyed by fire in 1916, was substituted for the Prairie landscape that had appeared on the back of the earlier $1 notes. A second version, with the dates 1867-1967 in place of the serial numbers, was also issued.
