The Bank of Canada has announced that it will develop and issue a commemorative banknote in 2017 to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Since it was founded, the Bank of Canada has issued two commemorative bank notes:  a special $1 note celebrated Canada’s 100th anniversary in 1967 and a commemorative $25 note was issued in 1935 in honour of the Silver Jubilee of King George V.

As announced earlier by Minister of Finance Joe Oliver, the commemorative bank note will be broadly available by 1 July 2017. Details on the denomination, the number of notes that will circulate and the means to obtain them will be made public closer to the issue date.
