A Nation's Calling Card
An exhibition at the Canadian Museum of History until March 29, 2020.
What is on its bank notes most often reflects how a nation perceives itself or wants to be perceived. But for Canada, this vision never sits still, and its ever-evolving images are as much a reflection of our times as they are of Canada and Canadians. From natural resources to our magnificent landscapes and from British royalty to Canadian achievers, follow more than 80 years of our official identity as seen on the rich and colourful images of every series of Bank of Canada notes.
