Yes I realize I hardly ever post a "banknote of the week" so it should be more like "banknote of the four months", but what can I say, I'm easily distracted.
Bank of Canada $10, series 1954
This particular note is very attractive to me for its simple elegance. Purple has been a symbol of royalty for thousands of years and its a very under-used color in the design of banknotes. I think it fits perfectly for this note bearing the image of Queen Elizabeth II and it really makes the red serial numbers pop out. The reverse is a beautiful Canadian landscape. All Canadian notes are bi-lingual in English and French. Printed by the British American Banknote Company Limited. The current producer of Canadian banknotes is the Canadian Banknote Company Limited - I am not sure if there is a connection or if they are distinct entities.
