    Gem 1935 English Text Silver Jubilee Commemorative $25

    BC-11 $25 1935
    From our 2011 Long Beach auction where it was cataloged: "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 of 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, and of the 57 English Text pieces that PMG has graded, only one is finer than this fresh and colorful ex-Siesta collection Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ example." It realized $18,400 then and may very well surpass that level as the population numbers for top graded notes has not changed very much.
