Value of Old Banknotes from The Union Bank of Montreal, Canada

Old Money from The Union Bank of Montreal

This guide covers both The Union Bank and The Union Bank of Montreal.  They are the same banking institution.  The Union Bank was the first title and around 1841 it changed its name to The Union Bank of Montreal.  Our guide below has more information about its bank note issues.

Bank Notes from 1838 & 1839:

These can be dated as July 14 1838, Aug. (August) 1838, or August 1 1839..  These were printed by Burton & Gurley New York.  One, two, three, five, ten, and twenty dollar bills were issued.  These are typically broken down into plain backs, green backs, blue backs, and orange backs.  All varieties are valued virtually the same.  Exact pricing comes down to denomination and condition.

Bank Notes from 1840:

These notes were issued under The Union Bank of Montreal title.  Fifty and one hundred dollar bills were printed by Danforth, Underwood & Co New York as well as by Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Huffy, Philadelphia.  Both denominations are dated as January 1 1840.
