Design features feeding hay to horses, and Indian Brave, and a woman with her hand on a wheel. The back design features lathework, counters and the bank name.

The Ontario Bank was established in Bowmanville, Canada West, in 1857 (and later in Toronto). It was discovered in 1905 that the general manager had been falsifying the books to hide Wall Street losses that had obliterated the bank's reserves. The bank did not suspend payment, but when difficulties were encountered though some of its lumber accounts, an arrangement was made in 1906 whereby all liabilities were taken over by the Bank of Montreal.

Together with certain other banks, the Bank of Montreal assumed all liabilities and paid depositors in full. Criminal charges were laid against the general manager, and he was sentenced to serve time at the Kingston Penitentiary.
