Notice of Temporary Closure

In a pre-emptive measure to protect visitors and staff from potential exposure to COVID-19, the Bank of Canada Museum has temporarily closed to the public and suspended all public programming.

First Series $20 Note

Printed by Canadian Bank Note Company Ltd., the $20 note features a portrait of 8-year-old Princess Elizabeth (granddaughter of King George V and later Queen Elizabeth II). The engraving for the note, completed by Edwin Gunn of American Bank Note Company, was based on a Marcus Adams photograph of the princess. The image on the back, based on a painting by Alonzo Foringer, shows two allegorical figures representing toil.
