Value of 2nd Jan. 1937 $20 Bill from The Bank of Canada

Bank of Canada 1937 Twenty 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. Twenty dollar bills are an olive green 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 $20 bills were printed by The Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited.

Varieties:   1937 $20 bills from Canada come in three varieties. Each variety is determined based on which deputy governor and governor signed the bank note. The possible signors include J.A.C. Osborne and G.F. Towers, D. Gordon and Towers, and J.E. Coyne and Towers. Twenty dollar bank notes signed by Osborne are very rare in high grades. Most of the other varieties are relatively common.
