BANK’S FOURTH COMMEMORATIVE BANKNOTE
Since its inception, the Bank of Canada has only issued three commemorative banknotes—one on Sept. 9, 2015, when the Queen became the longest-reigning sovereign in Canada’s modern era; one in 1967 to honour the 100th anniversary of Confederation; and another, the first, in 1935 to mark the Silver Jubilee of King George V.
