The $100 note in this series is the same sepia tint as the 1935 $500 note, and the face features the same portrait of Sir John A. Macdonald. No $500 note was ordered for the 1937 issue. Both the $100 and $1,000 notes for the 1937 series were produced by Canadian Bank Note Company Ltd. The commerce and industry allegory from the 1935 $100 note was retained on the back of the new note.
