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.

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.
