Value of 2nd Jan. 1937 $2 Bill from The Bank of Canada

Bank of Canada 1937 Two Dollar Bill

Description:   Most Canadian bank notes from 1937 feature a portrait of King George VI (with exception of $100 and $1000 bills). Each denomination has a different color tint, just like modern currency does today. Two dollar bills are a reddish brown color. The first thing you will probably notice is that the left side of each bank note has English text and the right hand side has French text. This was a change from 1935 bank notes, which were printed with either just French or just English text. 1937 $2 bills were printed by The British American Bank Note Company.

Varieties:   Canadian $2 bills from 1937 come in three different varieties. The varieties are based purely on which deputy governor and governor signed each note. The possible combinations are J.A.C. Osborne and G.F. Towers, D. Gordon and Towers, and J.E. Coyne and Towers. Two dollar bills with the Osborne signature are the most difficult to find.
