A Commemorative $10 Bank Note

Today, the Bank of Canada unveiled a commemorative $10 bank note to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.

The Canada 150 bank note celebrates Confederation with a unique design depicting our history, our culture and our land. This commemorative note will be available to Canadians through their financial institutions starting in June and will circulate along with the existing $10 note.

Your Businesses may be interested to note, this commemorative note has some new security features and others that are the same as the current Polymer series notes.  These features make the note easy to check and difficult to counterfeit.

Visit the Bank’s website for educational tools to help you recognize this historic addition to Canada’s polymer notes.

Produced in limited quantity, commemorative notes are designed to mark historic milestones. Since this commemorative note will be issued in relatively small numbers and may be retained by Canadians, its volume and time in circulation may be limited.

Retailers should contact their equipment supplier or manufacturer with any questions about machine compatibility.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
