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.

Birds of Canada Series $20 Note

The face of the $20 note features the Doubtfire engraving of the Queen that appears on the $2 note, but the adjacent vignette spotlights the Library of Parliament. A pair of common loons is depicted on the back of the note. Plans to put the loon on the $1 note were put on hold when the decision was made to replace the notes with the $1 coin, and it was later decided to use the image here. The note was issued in June 1993 and was printed by both Canadian Bank Note Company Ltd. and British American Bank Note Company.
