Value of Old Banknotes from La Banque Provinciale Du Canada in Montreal

Old Money from La Banque Provinciale Du Canada in Montreal

La Banque Provinciale Du Canada originally opened under the name La Banque Jacques Cartier in 1862.  It changed its name to La Banque Provinciale Du Canada in 1900.  This bank again changed names in 1979 when it merged with The Unity Bank.  We are of course focused on La Banque Provinciale’s paper money.  It issued bank notes from 1900 to 1936.  A general rule is that the older the note is, the more valuable it will be.  Our guide below has much more information.  We would still encourage you to contact us if you would like a free appraisal.  We are also buyers.

Bank Notes from 1900:

The British American Bank Note Co. Montreal printed five and ten dollar bills for La Banque Provinciale in 1900.  Each note has an engraved date of July 2nd 1900.  G.N. Ducharme’s signature appears on each bank note.  Five dollar bills are rare and ten dollar bills are even rarer.  Please contact us for exact value information.

1928 $10 Bills:

This is a relatively common bank note.  We know that 600,000 were printed.  Most lightly circulated examples should sell for around $200.  The exact value could be more or less based on the technical grade of each bank note.

1928 $20 Bills:

This is actually the only $20 bill issued by La Banque Provinciale Du Canada.  One hundred thousand of them were printed.  That is a relatively small number but these have survived in numbers such that the supply easily meets the demand.  This is the first note from the bank to feature an engraved portrait of J.B. Rolland.

1935 $10 Bills:

The English date on these would read as January 2nd 1935.  That really isn’t that long ago in the scheme of things.  These ten dollar bank notes are available in all conditions today.  Each note has a typed signature of S.J.B. Rolland and Chs. A. Roy.

1936 $5 Bills:

When dealing with La Banque Provinciale Du Canada’s $5 bills you want to look for examples with a green back.  That variety is worth almost twice as much as blue back notes.  Each note still has a portrait of Charles Arthur Ray and an engraved date of le 1er Sept. 1936 or 1st September 1936.  The signature of Ray and J.U. Boyer is typed on each note.  Contact us if you need exact value information.
banque provinciale 1936 5

1936 $10 Bills:

These notes are rarer if they have a green back instead of an orange back.  Both $5 and $10 bills from 1936 are valued the same and look very similar.  The English version of the date on these would read as September 1st 1936.
