Hi all
Please report 2015 $20 new prefix sightings in this thread. So far we're at FWS and FWT. Thanks.

This is what the Serial Number Database is for.  Forum members should be entering their notes to the SNDB so that the data is properly collected and disseminated through existing channels and gets included with the rest of the data.

Darn typo. I meant to say:

Hi BWJM. You said recently that you weren't planning on differentiating between 2012 and 2015 $20s in the SNDB. So there's no way to use it to find out which $20 prefixes are 2012 and which are 2015. That's why I started this thread.

I also said "at this time".

The changeovers are not yet known.  When they are, they will be added to the SNDB just like all other changeovers.  So right in the middle of the FW- series, you'll see a changeover to the commemorative notes, and another changeover back to the regular notes.  Or maybe not... Maybe those will be the last polymer $20s produced before whatever the next series is.

So, keep adding your notes to the SNDB please.  No separate "post your notes" thread is required, for this topic, or any other group of notes already covered by the SNDB.  When the official changeovers are known, the SNDB will be updated.

Thanks

I'd still like to know, as soon as possible when they are first sighted, when new 2015 $20 prefixes are out. So yes, please do enter them into the SNDB, which will mark them as 2012 $20s for now. But please also, if you wish to help me out, let me know in this thread when you find a new one, since the SNDB won't give us that info at this time. Thanks.

I don't think it would be too difficult to work with what we currently have for the SNDB as there will very likely only be 4 prefixes... FWS, FWT, FWU, FWV.

I thought there is a 2012 FWS with the commemorative design as shown by the Bank of Canada Museum.

I am  not sure if people who are finding the low FWS are finding a 2012 or a 2015.

If it is like other notes such as FKZ, AMK, BSW, FTH etc. where is likely that some of the early versions of these notes may have been used in circulation trials of some type.

It is not hard to fathom that the BoC may have produced some notes using newer substrate sheets but on old plates. Is there a possibility that they got out and be found?


Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

That's interesting, yes it does seem to show an "Issue 2012" on the face of a note with the commemorative hologram. FWS0325512. I wonder if that really exists or if it's a composite image.

My special $20s that start with "04" are issued in 2015

So maybe there is a change over in dates from '03' to '04'

This is a museum piece. Hopefully it is real.

If it isn't real, it wouldn't be the first time a doctored image has appeared on the BoC museum website. I remember a controversy about an image of a 1935 French note with an obviously computer generated pixellated serial number from an English issue on it.

The image linked above no longer says "Issue 2012", it now clearly says "Issue 2015".

Vow! Can you even trust a museum anymore? Did anyone notice another problem. Look very carefully.

Thx for bringing it to the attention of this post. Much appreciated.
