Read between the lines – the Bank is different than the Government of Canada.

Our forum has pointed out before that the Bank of Canada designs new bank notes under the direction of politicians, namely the Minister of Finance.  This minister’s office is where the final $5 bank note design has sat for a long time.

The Bank of Canada prepares new designs of bank notes incorporating the latest security features and materials.  It makes essays of one or more designs following government instructions.  The final decision rests with government.

I believe the Bank can prepare both the $5 and $20 bank notes when directions (decisions) are received from the Minister of Finance.  Good luck!

On the one hand, a totally ridiculous time frame. One shouldn't be surprised if King Charles' portrait has to be removed in order for a King William portrait. (Having said that: ''Long live the King!'')
On the other hand, the BoC upgrades the $20 note. So, I can understand the BoC needs a bit more time than the Bank of England which merely changed the portrait on their banknotes from QEII to KCIII. Still...
To add to that, a large quantity of QEII twenties with Lane-Macklem signatures is yet to be circulated. We know of at least 7 prefixes (FZT-FLA), but the actual number is likely much higher, probably 20 prefixes or so, as twenties are always produced in larger quantities.

And at the bottom of the Bank of Canada's Vertical $5 page, they've added this under "Current status:"

Whoa, whoa, whoa... I must have missed Graphic Design class the day they taught the one-item-at-a-time rule.


2027 for the $20 note... so 2030 for the $5? By the time they get around to the $50 and the $100 perhaps the $10 will already have moved on the next next series.

I am not a monarchist so I could care less about when they actually update the $20 & the time frame doesn't surprise me: we have only seen 50 odd new "Lane Macklem" prefixes (no FZT but a few FZZ, 1 FLA & 1 FZV). There's still likely "Rogers Macklem" $20 to arrive so 2027 seems about right (esp considering how long these polymers hold up/ our lack of cash use). Any time I take out a bundle of Twenties, I'm bound to get 60-80% of the old original 2012 prefixes (starting with BI_/BS & FS_, FI).

Then look what happened to the updated $5.00 (never happened) so these guys move about as fast as a doped up sloth (& its no wonder since CDNS no longer use cash much).

Bank of Canada updates progress on new $20 note
The Bank expects the new $20 note to be issued in early 2027.

Bank of Canada updates progress on new $20 note

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Media Relations
Ottawa, Ontario
May 6, 2024

On the first anniversary of the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, the Bank of Canada issued a progress update on designing a new $20 bank note.

As announced by the government at the coronation, the new note will feature King Charles III as the portrait subject. The back will continue to feature the Canadian National Vimy Memorial. The new note will be vertical like the current $10 note, made of polymer and primarily green in colour, the Bank said today.

The Bank will incorporate enhanced security features into the redesigned $20 note, which will keep Canada one step ahead of counterfeiting threats.

“The $20 bank note is Canada’s workhorse note—more than a billion are circulating in pockets, cash registers and ATMs across the country,” said Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem. “Cash remains an important payment method, and we’re looking forward to issuing a new $20 note that Canadians can continue to use with confidence.”

The process of issuing new notes involves several steps: research and development, design – including security features – and, finally, production. The Bank expects the new $20 note to be issued in early 2027.

In the meantime, the current $20 note, which was first issued in 2012 and which features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, will continue to circulate.

For the latest updates on the process, follow us on Twitter/X, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram.

Additional information
  • The current Frontiers Series $20 note featuring Queen Elizabeth II was issued on November 7, 2012. A commemorative version of the $20 marking Queen Elizabeth II’s historic reign was issued on September 9, 2015.
    The $20 is the denomination with the highest circulation volume. There were over 1 billion $20 notes in circulation at the end of 2023.
    Queen Elizabeth II first appeared on Canadian currency as 8-year-old Princess Elizabeth on the First Series $20 note, in 1935.
    Canada’s Head of State has appeared in every series of bank notes since the Bank took on responsibility for issuing the country’s bank notes in 1935.
    Under the Bank of Canada Act, the Minister of Finance approves the ‘form and material’ of bank notes, including the portrait subject and other images.

Toronto Coin Expo finds, Part 2:
This 1954 $1 has a phone number written on it and the name “Diae” (Possibly “Diane”?”

These 1973 $1s are neat.  One note has a partial teller stamp but there’s not enough information to get a location.

One note has the name “Marie” written in black sharpie.
One note has the name “Mary B.” Written on the front and back of the note.
The last note has dark circles drawn around the Queen’s eyes.

Enjoy!

Toronto Coin Expo pickups, Part 1.

I got these notes from the Toronto Coin Expo on the weekend.

This multicolour $50 has a nice date stamp on it…Nov 1 79 Toronto.

This 1979 $5 has the pink stamp of death from The Royal Bank of Canada Toronto, Ont.  Unfortunately, the branch name is very hard to read and so is the date.  🙁

This 1954 $1 has a nice lear message written in ink: “June 22-25 1958 Ottawa.”

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

I got this 50 cent coin from the bank today and it has what looks to be a 'slash' through it with some sort of substance stuck on the ends.  Wondering if anyone has seen this before and knows what it is?

Cheers,
Breanna
