Bank of Canada 1954 'Modified Portrait' Notes


The 1954 notes were printed by the Canadian Bank Note Company and British American Banknote Company. The imprint of the banknote companies are located at the bottom centre of the notes. Both companies produced the $1 and $5 notes. The value is basically the same for both types and are thus not listed separately. Both types may be ordered at the same price.

Please note that this catalogue is used as both an ordering tool and the only online reference list of its kind. We do not always have every item available in every grade, nor do we have every older coin or set. However, we tend to have many items available in many grades. Rare or hard to obtain items may not be available. Anything not currently available can be located for you if you request by sending an e-mail, fax, or by calling. Bracketed items in black text are known to be out of stock. Some other higher grade items may be found on our current list of PMG graded Canadian currency, from our Home page.
