This museum quality 1896 Dominion Bank $5 note is one of the rarest and highest quality early Canadian bank notes to have survived. It is an original uncirculated set of face and back printer's proofs which would not normally be available for private collectors to obtain. The face design features a kneeling woman with an anvil and a seated woman with agricultural produce. The back design is composed of lathework, counters, the bank name and a Greek God.
This was one of the very first notes printed in 1896, and would have been presented to the president or top officials of the bank for approval to proceed to printing notes for circulation, or could have been a sample presented to the original engraver. As is usually the case for proof notes, each note is one sided. Issued notes of this series are also extremely rare, with the only known surviving examples being held in institutional collections. Accordingly, this is the only possible way for a private collector to acquire an example of this note.
This note was part of a collection assembled by a prominent Canadian collector over a 40 year period. Notes in this collection included samples from the archives of the American Bank Note Company and Canadian Bank Note Company which were sold through Christie's Auctions in 1991, as well as other notes purchased through prominent auctions and private treaty sales, in some cases from the families of former bank officials and engravers. All the notes in the collection are rare, with surviving quantities ranging from unique pieces up to about a dozen surviving examples.
This complete collection was recently purchased by Canadian Coin & Currency and is being offered to collectors through The Shopping Channel. Notes from this collection provide an unprecedented opportunity for collectors to acquire extremely rare early Canadian bank notes that are seldom available in the marketplace.
