Value of Old Banknotes from The Gore Bank in Hamilton, Canada

Old Money from The Gore Bank in Hamilton

The Gore Bank existed from 1835 until 1870.  The bank itself was very successful during the land boom in the 1850s.  Sadly, the failure of other banks resulted in too many depositor withdrawals for The Gore Bank.  Its balance sheet got upside down and it was eventually absorbed by The Canadian Bank of Commerce, at a great loss to The Gore Bank’s shareholders.  During its lifetime the bank issued one, two, four, and ten dollar bank notes.  See our guide below for more information.
