    Gem 1935 English $25 Commemorative

    BC-11 $25 1935
    The last realization for an example of this English issue was $35,000 in April 2014. This denomination was not part of the regular Series of 1935 issue, but was printed as a special commemorative tribute marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of H.M. King George V's accession to the throne. While 140,000 English Text examples were printed, a mere 20,000 of their French Text compatriots were issued. The entire issue was in circulation for only two years, as the Bank of Canada in May 1937 chose to cancel all new $25 notes and redeem all those in circulation. Of the 160,000 pieces issued in both languages, a total of only 1840 were outstanding by 2006. This note certainly has all of the look to go with the grade. King George V and Queen Mary grace the face, while Windsor Castle adorns the back in royal purple. It is tied with several others at the lofty grade of PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ, with just one higher.


    Estimate: $30,000 - $40,000.
