Bank of Canada unveils commemorative bank note to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Media Relations

Ottawa, Ontario
7 April 2017

Bank of Canada Governor Stephen S. Poloz and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance Ginette Petitpas Taylor today unveiled a commemorative $10 bank note celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation. This special note—showcasing our history, land and culture—was revealed during a ceremony at the Bank’s head office in Ottawa. It will enter into circulation on 1 June.

“This bank note is intended to captivate our imagination and instill pride in what we, as a nation, have accomplished,” said Governor Poloz. “It celebrates the natural beauty and majesty of our land and some of the important parliamentarians who helped shape our great country.”

The intricately designed note is unique in many ways. For the first time, four individuals are portrayed on the front of a Canadian bank note: Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir George-Étienne Cartier, Agnes Macphail and James Gladstone or Akay-na-muka—his Blackfoot name. With Parliament’s Hall of Honour in the background, these four parliamentarians remind us that Canada has been shaped by the vision, courage and effort of people of different backgrounds.

Upon circulation, the commemorative note will mark the first time that a Canadian woman and an Indigenous Canadian are depicted as portrait subjects on a Bank of Canada bank note. The design also incorporates Inuit and Metis cultural elements: a colourful reproduction of the artwork Owl’s Bouquet by world-renowned Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak; and the distinctive arrow sash pattern, an important symbol of the Métis nation.

“Canada’s diversity is our greatest strength,” said Ms. Petitpas Taylor. “As we celebrate Canada 150 we are reminded of what makes us who we are—from our shared history, to our cultures and languages to the breathtaking natural beauty that is instantly recognized around the world. On behalf of the Government of Canada I thank Governor Poloz and the Bank of Canada for their contribution to this truly national celebration.”

The Canada 150 note also showcases Canada’s natural beauty and unique landscapes. Five different landscapes representing the various regions of Canada are featured on the other side of the note: the Lions/Twin Sisters (Western Canada), a wheat field (Prairie provinces), the Canadian Shield (Central Canada), Cape Bonavista (Eastern Canada) and the Northern lights (Northern Canada).

The commemorative $10 note also has new security features, including a colour-shifting arch depicting an arch found in the Memorial Chamber on Parliament Hill, as well as three-dimensional maple leaves.

A comprehensive consultation process was undertaken by the Bank to ensure that this commemorative bank note reflects the input of Canadians. The ideas and suggestions received through public opinion research, consultation and focus groups influenced the note’s content and have been carefully incorporated into the design.

Starting in June, the Bank of Canada will issue 40 million of these commemorative bank notes and distribute them through financial institutions to be broadly available across Canada by 1 July.

The Canada 150 note will circulate alongside the current Polymer series $10 note, but it does not replace it. Both the current $10 note and the commemorative $10 note are of equal value and can be used interchangeably in transactions.

As announced in December, human rights and freedoms icon Viola Desmond will be featured on a new $10 note, which will mark another historic first: Desmond will become the first Canadian woman to be featured on a regularly circulating Bank of Canada bank note, expected in late 2018.

Unveiling of Commemorative Bank Note Marking the 150th Anniversary of Canada

Remarks
Stephen S. Poloz - Governor
Ottawa, Ontario
7 April 2017
Available as: PDF
We at the Bank of Canada are proud to have produced this special note commemorating Canada’s 150th anniversary. We’ve only ever produced three other such bank notes in our 82-year history, so believe me when I say this is a big deal.

Developing any bank note is a long and involved process, especially so with this one. We’ve been working on it since 2014, and more than 5,000 individual Canadians have fed into the process. We asked them if they wanted to see the past, the present or the future on the note. In true Canadian form, the answer to this question was “All three.”

The design was inspired by that input and carefully incorporates many of the ideas we heard on how to best represent the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Isn’t it amazing how much history you can fit onto a little piece of polymer?

All of the historical elements in the note’s design show why this year calls for a big celebration!

This bank note not only reflects the pride we feel about our country and its accomplishments, it also, we hope, instills in Canadians a different kind of confidence.

The Bank is responsible for the design, production and distribution of Canada’s bank notes. And while bank notes reflect Canada’s society, culture and history, it’s also our job to ensure that they are durable and difficult to counterfeit—in short, so that Canadians can have confidence in their money.

From a design perspective, when we asked Canadians what they wanted to see, more than anything else, they said Canada’s landscapes. So if we look at the back of the note, we will see several images of Canada’s natural beauty, seamlessly woven together—from sea to sea to sea.

From left to right, we start in the west with the Lions—or the Twin Sisters, as the Squamish people know them—the peaks of the North Shore Mountains, which overlook Vancouver. In the foreground, we can see Capilano Lake.

Moving east, we come to the Prairies. We see wheat, the iconic crop of Canada’s Prairie provinces and one of the most important cultivated crops in Canada. This image reminds Canadians of the importance of the role family farms played in the expansion of our country and of the Prairies as the breadbasket of our nation.

Then the note takes us to the Canadian Shield, that ancient mass of rock that covers roughly half of the total land area of Canada. This is a view that many Ottawans may find familiar: forest, rock and water, minus the blackflies. The image used on this bank note is inspired by a photograph taken at the soon-to-be-created parc national d’Opémican in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Quebec. The Kipawa River pictured here flows out of the park and into the Ottawa River. Those waters eventually run past our doorsteps here and down to Montréal, where they merge with the St. Lawrence.

Moving right, we go to the east coast of Canada and an image of Cape Bonavista in Newfoundland and Labrador. This may very well have been the view that John Cabot saw when he landed in 1497.

Above these images of Canada, we see the northern lights as they would appear if we were in Wood Buffalo National Park, home to the world’s largest dark-sky preserve.

Now some of you may be old enough to remember the Centennial bank note produced by the Bank of Canada in 1967. Many people still have some of them tucked away.

I know I will be keeping one of these new notes. We have produced 40 million of them, just more than enough for every Canadian. They will be available as of June 1st.

As all of you celebrate Canada’s big birthday this year, I encourage you to take a close look at this special note. It will be a little piece of history. I hope this bank note captivates your imagination and instills pride in who we are and how far we have come as a nation. It celebrates our land, our history and our culture.

It’s a bank note that reminds us of how much we have to celebrate as Canadians.

Thank you. Merci beaucoup.

2005 $10 - Last prefix is BFW.

Yes, but C is the printer letter for BAI, and they no longer print Canadian notes. Of course, it is possible that this letter is now used by CBN. Also, as 40 million commemorative $10 notes have been printed, their first prefix is likely not CDA, as CDA-CDF would be close to 60 million notes. Another mystery.

I like the new note too, especially the security features. The window is very attractive, similar to that on the latest New Zealand notes, but it is Kinegram stripe rather than patch, going edge to edge. Note that the 3D silver leaves are a part of the stripe. It is also good to see the blue-green SPARK patch as well, it is a common feature on many modern banknotes.

For the information on the Kinegram and SPARK security features, see the following links:

Ha ha, that's hilarious. It also plays a cheesy organ rendition of O Canada. The Konami code <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konami_Code> makes it to the Bank of Canada. How did you discover that?

Bank of Canada issues commemorative $10 bank note to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Media Relations
613-782-8782
Ottawa, Ontario
1 June 2017

The Bank of Canada today began circulating the $10 commemorative bank note that celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Canadians can now obtain this special note at financial institutions. Only 40 million notes are being issued—roughly one for every Canadian.

Governor Stephen S. Poloz was among the first to spend a commemorative note at a store in downtown Ottawa this morning. “This bank note reflects the pride we feel about our country’s accomplishments and the hope we have for our future,” said Governor Poloz. “But it also underpins the confidence Canadians can have in their bank notes.  The new security features of this $10 note make it the most secure Canadian bank note to date.”

The new security features include a colour-shifting image of an arch found in the Memorial Chamber on Parliament Hill, as well as three-dimensional maple leaves. Like the security features of all polymer bank notes, they are easy to verify and difficult to counterfeit.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, said she hoped the bank note would inspire Canadians. “This year, Canadians will have the opportunity to reflect on our history and celebrate our heritage. With this note to commemorate 150 years of Confederation, we are reminded of our strengths: our rich diversity and our enduring hope for a brighter tomorrow,” she said.

The Canada 150 bank note celebrates Canada’s history, land and culture, as the country marks this important milestone.

Four Canadians who played significant roles in the country’s parliamentary history are portrayed on the front of the note: Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister; Sir George-Étienne Cartier, a principal architect of Canadian federalism; Agnes Macphail, the first woman elected to the Canadian House of Commons; and James Gladstone, or Akay-na-muka (his Blackfoot name), Canada’s first senator of First Nations origin.

The design also incorporates other cultural elements: a reproduction of the artwork Owl’s Bouquet by world-renowned Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak and the distinctive arrow sash pattern, an important symbol of the Métis nation that also pays homage to the French-Canadian voyageurs of the 18th century.

The reverse of the note features the rugged splendour of Canada’s lands and landscapes: the Lions/Twin Sisters (Western Canada), a wheat field (Prairie provinces), the Canadian Shield (Central Canada), Cape Bonavista (Eastern Canada) and the northern lights (Northern Canada).

Beginning today, the commemorative bank note will be available over the counter at financial institutions across the country. While the commemorative $10 note does not replace the current Polymer series $10 note, which continues to circulate, it is of equal value and can be used in transactions.

Notes to Editors:

  • As announced in December, human rights and freedoms icon Viola Desmond will be featured on a new, regularly circulating $10 note expected in late 2018. This will mark another historic first: Desmond will become the first Canadian woman to be featured on a regularly circulating bank note.

Nothing yet at any of the big 5's main branches in Toronto.

They really need to have a more timely way to roll out new notes!

As of the lunch hour, both TD and CIBC main branches in downtown Toronto had supply.

Got $500 worth from each bank - CDA and CDB prefixes.

I got some from TD branches in Milton & Burlington. Some branches had none (both BMO branches I tried had none). 

The notes seem to have a different texture than the regular $10 and they seem almost thicker.  Maybe its the ink? They are a much darker design too.  I really like them (now if I could only find a decent number!)

Got 2 nice bundles from TD this morning.......all were CDC but there were many inserts...............now I can't say if they are insert replacements until some further research.  All ten bundles in the brick were not machine counted or touched by bank staff.  Also the inserts are cut a bit different and stick out from edge by a mm................here is how they are arranged in the intact bundles......maybe someone can comment:

1st:  from face downwards the bundle starts at......CDC 2031989 to CDC 2031974....(2031973 missing).....next is CDC 2031972 to CDC 2031955....( 2031954 missing).........CDC 2031953 to CDC 2031901   then.........CDC 2032199 to CDC 2032187................making a complete 100 pieces.

So 13 "inserts" at bottom of bundle.......inserts cut 1mm larger and and the 'ridge' is obvious when resting bundle on edge.


2nd: From top of bundle down:  CDC 2031595  to  2031510  (2031509 missing)  CDC 2031507  to  2031501................then CDC 2031799, 98, 97........95, 94, ......92, 91

So 6 "inserts" at bottom.  (inserts would be "replacing" 2031509 and 2031596, 97, 98, 99, 00.
The inserts are cut to tolerance and are flush with edges.
Seem like replacements to me...............

I cleaned the Scotia main branch of their last 6 notes this morning.  :-D

BMO and RBC still had nothing, which was surprising as they've been pretty good with having new notes on the day of issue.

Got another bundle from the CIBC main branch, but no good numbers.

TD was the only bank which had a good supply around their branches - every branch I asked in the financial district had some.

Also got CDC 010 notes today at Scotia Bank.  Another collector that works there was allowed to go through the bundles and got 2 radars 0105010 and 0104010!!
RBC says they know nothing about the new notes and never received any notification about them and have no idea when they would get any.

Wasted no time in entering the ones I could following the rules of course in regard to sequential notes.

Thanks for getting on that right away!!

P.S. The plate numbers are indeed harder to spot until you get used to their location.

CDA-CDF? 60 million possible notes? The press release said there would only be 40 million. CDA-CDD, and perhaps a few CDE for an overrun, but where did CDF come from?

There are many missing notes in CDA bundles I have seen. It is possible that the number of discarded sheets in CDA-CDD is so high that the entire CDE prefix and a part of CDF prefix had to be printed. It is also possible that more than 40 million notes were printed overall (but very likely not 60 million).

In case anyone is curious, the infrared properties appear not to have changed much with the new notes.  See below.  The upper note is a regular polymer $100 and the lower note is a Canada 150 $10.



One can see that the left-hand serial numbers show, but the right ones do not.  Also, most other printing on the right is blank.  The fronts are similar with a large white area.

  Just got a few of these notes, all prefix CDB.  When I first saw them online, they didn't really look too great to me but after seeing them in person they look really nice.  The colors stand out really nice compared to the regular polymer notes.

I have to agree with you P or P and can't wait to see what the B.O.C. comes up with next!

They really threw the kitchen sink in this one and really thought things through in my opinion.

I picked up a bundle this week and they are CDA, I really like the note. In my bundle there were a lot of missing notes from the numerical sequence.

Didn't find any interesting serial numbers, but the 200 skip is easy to see in these bundles. Lots of missin serial numbers. Notes with last two digits 00 and 99 are missing quite a bit, there must have been issues...

I had some bundles and the notes in each of the bundle were within range.

However one bundle had notes from

CDC and
CDA

in the same bundle (and there is good reason to  believe that this bundle was not tampered with)

I have been cataloging bundles and there is a trend that can be seen . If you start with notes with the number side facing up then you will notice the following:

The numbers will be increasing towards xxxxx99. Then you will see the number change to xxxxx00 but with PN which is one lower than the one above. In other words if the PN of the top note is 07 and the number increases to xxxxx99 then the PN of the xxxxx00 is 06. When the top PN is 01 the one after it is 19 and so on. When the top PN is 41 the one after it is PN 09 from the next higher 200 skip.

In the four bundles that are shown by Relic you will see the above pattern:

Bundle 1 -
CDB 4786101 to CDB 4786199 --- PN19
CDB 4785901 ---                         PN 18

Bundle 2 -
CDB 4785711 to CDB 4785798 --- PN 17
CDB 4785501 to ----                     PN 16

Bundle 3 -
CDA 6516606 to CDA 6516698 ---  PN 44
CDA 6516400 to----                       PN 43

Bundle 4 -
CDA 4688713 to CDA 4688779 --- PN 08
CDA 4688501 to -----                   PN 07

In my CDC-CDA run it followed the same pattern with respect to the PN

CDC - PN41
CDA - PN09
CDA - PN08

There were three PNs in the bundle because there were many missing notes in the ranges corresponding to each of the PNs. The fact that the CDC and CDA were mixed is an interesting twist.



PS - I do not believe this has anything to do with inserts. My research has shown that ever since skip number 200 has been used the notes have all been subject to single note inspection and BoC has made it very clear that there is no intention to have notes in sequence or notes inserted for missing notes. I have an alternative explanation for the reason for variations found in bundles which I will try to write in a future article.

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

Rupiah, Good job reading those tiny numbers from my junky photo!

The 200 number that are "skipped" are simply printed a another PN correct? Wou be interesting to see a 3D image of all PN with 200 layers showing the serial increments.

I will add that in all of the notes the fpn was the same number as the bpn.

Finally found an interesting serial today, CDA5351535, a radar repeater!
