Description
1943 The Royal Bank of Canada Montreal $5 Dollar Specimen Banknote                                SKU# 512826C

The Royal Bank of Canada originally opened in 1864 in Halifax, Nova Scotia as The Merchants Bank.  In 1901, in an attempt to become more worldly, the bank changed its name to The Royal Bank of Canada and it moved to Montreal.  The Royal Bank of Canada printed currency from 1901 until 1943. This fascinating $5 dollar Specimen banknote from 1943 serves as a wonderful piece of Canada's rich monetary history and is a must-have addition for any collection.
