In honour of the 100th anniversary of Confederation 2 versions of 1954 $1 note were issued., bearing the date 1967.

Atter the ascension to the throne of Queen Elizabeth II in 1952,this is the only series on which the portrait of the Queen appears on all denominations.

The creation of a second series of bank notes, only two years after the first issue, was prompted by changes in Canadian government legislation requiring the Bank of Canada to produce bilingual bank notes. Another contributing factor was the death of King George V on 20 January 1936 and the subsequent abdication of Edward VIII.

The first bank notes were unilingual.Unique to the 1935 series were:1/ $25 note, issued to commemorate the silver jubilee of King George V

2/ $500 note, a carry-over from Dominion of Canada bank notes.

All denominations were available either in French. The designs were identical,.
