First Series $25 Commemorative Note

This special royal purple $25 note was issued on 6 May 1935 to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V. Printed by the Canadian Bank Note Company, it features portraits of King George V and Queen Mary, engraved by Edwin Gunn and Will Ford of the American Bank Note Company. Louis Delmoce, also of the American Bank Note Company, engraved the image of Windsor Castle, one of the royal family’s official residences, that appears on the back of the note. This was the only $25 note ever issued by the Bank of Canada as well as the only note to feature a vignette whose content was not Canadian.
