Anyone familiar with Canadian currency?

5 posts in this topic

A Canadian friend of mine has just mailed to me what he says are two $5 bills: a 1937 $5 issued by the Bank of Toronto and a 1938 $5 issued by the Dominion Bank.


I'm not that familiar with Canadian currency and didn't know that any entity other than the Bank of Canada issued banknotes in the '30s.


I'd appreciate any info.

Thanks for the link.


It sounds like the Canadians started phasing out private bank notes in 1934.


I wonder when they were phased out completely?


Gee, maybe these notes that I'm getting are valuable grin.gif

My 1989 Charleton gives the values as:


1937 Bank of Toronto $5 VG$25 VF $50 UNC$175 either signature group


1938 Dominion Bank $5 $25 $50 $180



In Canadian dollars with stricter grading standards than US grading.

I posted the same question across the street (on the US & World currency forum) and Askari said that Pick gives essentially the same prices and that these issues are the last from their respective banks.


I love to learn something new grin.gif
