Notice of Temporary Closure

The Bank of Canada Museum remains closed due to COVID-19. Our museum experience is highly interactive, and our top priority is the safety of our staff and visitors. We look forward to welcoming you again once it is safe for us to reopen.

Bilingual Series $1 Note

The face of the $1 note was modified in 1938 to increase the width of the panel in which the signatures appeared by 2.4 mm, to counter earlier printing problems. All the dies, rolls, and plates used to produce the original version were destroyed by Canadian Bank Note Company Ltd. The allegorical figure of agriculture on the back of the note is the same as that on the back of the 1935 $1 note.
