Value of Old Banknotes from The Peoples Bank of Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada

Old Money from The Peoples Bank of Halifax, Nova Scotia

The People’s Bank of Halifax opened for business in 1864 and it was purchased by The Bank of Montreal in 1905.  The bank had 26 branches by the time it was bought out.  It issued four, five, ten, and twenty dollar bank notes.  The denominations have similar designs across different years.  Our guide is sorted by denomination rather than by year.

Four Dollar Bank Notes:

The People’s Bank of Halifax printed $4 bills with a date of July 1st 1870.  Most of these notes have a red overprint and seal that reads as “Canada Currency” and “Canada Currency issue of July 1871.”  These are rare, but they are the most common notes from this bank.
