While four different signature combinations exist on 1954 modified series banknotes, the scarcest are the first and oldest notes bearing the signatures of Beattie and Coyne as the deputy governor and governor of the Bank of Canada. This collection includes scarce Beattie / Coyne $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 & $100 notes, all in about uncirculated condition. All of the notes come displayed in professional banknote holders.
While slightly more than 10% of the total number of 1954 modified series notes originally released featured the "Beattie - Coyne" signatures, only about 1% - 2% of surviving notes are "Beattie - Coyne" instead of the later notes. Most advanced collectors of Canadian banknotes try to assemble all of the different signatures for each note.
Signatures appearing on Canadian banknotes change when the governor or deputy governor of the Bank of Canada change. 1954 modified notes feature the following signatures:
1st issue: Beattie - Coyne
2nd issue: Beattie - Rasminsky
3rd issue: Bouey- Rasminsky
4th issue: Lawson-Bouey
The original "young portrait" of Queen Elizabeth appears on all the face of all of the banknotes.
