Fractional Currency was first introduced into Canada in 1870. Twenty-five cents was the only denomination used. This was supposed to offset Silver coins coming from the U.S.


Currency Highlights:

  • A scarce and early Canadian note.
  • Housed in an archival quality currency holder.
  • Face: An image of "Britannia."
  • Back: Green ink with text relating that the note is "Redeemable on presentation in Montreal, Toronto or St. John."


Although these notes were designed to be a temporary fix for a Silver coin shortage, they proved to be very popular. Add this Shinplaster note to your cart today!
