Canada Bank of Canada $25 6.5.1935 Pick 48 BC-11 Commemorative Issue PCGS Banknote Choice XF 45. An always delightful and desirable type, the example here is heightened by its superb grade and low serial number 167. Only 160,000 of these special notes were printed, in both languages, with less than 2 percent outstanding as of 2013. Simply beautiful designs on both sides endear this note to collectors worldwide. Although this note celebrated the the 25th anniversary of the accession of King George V and Queen Mary to their thrones, its circulation was cut short by the King's passing in early 1936, which ushered in the new series of banknotes in 1937. Highly collectible, especially in this state of preservation.
