Value of Old Banknotes from The Bank of London in Canada

Old Money from The Bank of London in Canada

The history of The Bank of London in Canada (Ontario) is almost as interesting as its bank notes.  The bank opened in 1883 and by 1887 it was well managed and under negotiations to be bought by The Bank of Toronto.  Two days before the deal was to take place, the president of The Bank of London, Henry Taylor, stole $20,000 and fled Canada for The United States.  Amazingly, months later the deal got back on track and the branches of The Bank of London were absorbed by The Bank of Toronto and The Traders Banks of Watford and Brantford.  Part of what is so interesting about Henry Taylor’s flight is that he signed every bank note and his image is engraved on each note.  He was’t exactly a low profile figure.

Five, ten, twenty, fifty, and one hundred dollar bank notes were printed by The British American bank Note Co., Montreal for The Bank of London.  Each note is dated as 1st Decr. 1883.  Five dollar bank notes are scarce, all other denominations are very rare.
