Government of Newfoundland 1920 Banknotes
Here are some colorful and popular Canadian banknotes. These were issued because of a shortage in silver change around 1920. Silver was more valuable in other parts of the world, so people were melting coins and selling them for a profit. There were 600,000 Jany 2nd 1920 $1 bills and 300,000 January 1920 $2 bills printed. Of that total it is thought that around $12,000 in face value still survives today. That means that these aren’t traditionally rare. However, high grades notes are few and far between. These are some of our favorite Canadian banknotes and we would welcome the chance to buy any examples.
