Value of July 2nd 1887 $2 Bill from The Dominion of Canada

Dominion of Canada July 2nd 1887 Two Dollar Bill

Description:   1887 $2 bills kind of fly under the radar when it comes to Dominion of Canada currency. Each note features the portrait of the Marchioness and the Marquis of Lansdowne. Those aren’t exactly household names today. These were also the only bank notes dated between 1882 and 1897. These aren’t terribly popular, but they can be rare and expensive.

Varieties:   Our guide shows the standard 1887 $2 bill with no letter below the blue serial number. If there is a black “A” below your serial number then you have a scarcer variety. The A notes are worth about three times more than the more common variety that we have pictured.

Quantity Printed:   4,600,000

Text:   The Dominion Of Canada – Will Pay To The Bearer Ottawa, July 2nd 1887 – Two Dollars – British American Bank Note Co. Montreal
