Value of Old Banknotes from The Central Bank of New Brunswick in Fredericton, Canada

Old Money from The Central Bank of New Brunswick in Fredericton

The Central Bank of New Brunswick was open from 1834 until 1866.  It opened very early in the history of Canadian finance; it was the first charter where the shareholders were required to be doubly liable for the amounts of their shares.  The bank was initially opened in Fredericton.  Branches in Woodstock, Moncton, and Chatham were eventually opened.  The bank ran smoothly until late 1857 when both loans and deposits went bad.  The Bank was able to regain its footing, but it again ran into trouble late in 1861 and it was unable to recover.  Generally speaking, bank notes from The Central Bank of New Brunswick exist in very small quantities today.  Our guide below shows you what is rare and what is exceptionally rare.
