Canadian Tire collectors launch new logo, catalogue

The Canadian Tire Collectors Club (CTCC) has unveiled a special logo marking the Canadian Tire Corporation’s 100th anniversary.

CTCC charter member Jerome Fourre designed the club’s official logo for use on his website, ctccollector.ca, and his reference catalogues, including the new Canadian Tire Numismatic Catalogue. Fourre also worked with Fred White, the club’s Kingston director, to design the centennial logo, which was then sent to a private mint to strike a token for sale to CTCC members. Fourre also recently unveiled the new 2022-dated Canadian Tire Numismatic Catalogue, which lists every regular-issue note released by Canadian Tire, its Petroleum division and Simard-Montcalm plus special issues, specimens, coins, tokens, stamps and more.

The Canadian Bank Note Company, the same security printer contracted to produce Canadian banknotes since the Bank of Canada’s 1935 creation, and the British American Bank Note Company (now BA International), which closed its Ottawa facility in 2012, printed the majority of the notes.

For the digital version, collectors can download the catalogue for $13 via Fourre’s website. Printed versions are also available for $53 (plus postage).

Brothers J.W. and A.J. Billes founded Canadian Tire in Toronto on Oct. 24, 1922, after purchasing Hamilton Tire & Garage for $1,800.
