1935 $25 Commemorative Notes

The $25 note was a special commemorative issue marking the Silver Jubilee of the reign of King George V. These notes were printed in separate English and French versions like the regular issue notes of 1935. The front of the note features portraits of King George V and Queen Mary. The reverse of the note features a view of Windsor Castle as seen from across the Thames River in England.

The 1935 $25 notes are a very rare variety. Of the total 160,000 $25 notes issued to the public in 1935, only 1,840 were not returned to the Bank of Canada as of 2001. Many of the notes seen from this series tend to be in very rough shape. A note in excellent condition, such as the ones pictured here, can sell for upwards of $10,000.00 at auction.

These notes are from the famous collection of the late Amon Carter Jr. He had assembled the best-ever collection of world paper money to date and will probably never be surpassed.
