As Canada’s Head of State, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been prominently featured on our bank notes throughout her reign. Her first appearance was actually as 8-year-old Princess Elizabeth, on the first $20 note issued by the Bank of Canada in 1935. With only one exception, each subsequent series has featured a portrait of the Queen on the $20 denomination.The commemorative $20 note was issued on 9 September 2015, the day on which Queen Elizabeth II’s reign exceeded that of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, making her the longest-reigning sovereign in Canada’s modern era.Special features include:Metallic Portrait of the Queen - The metallic portrait in the large window is based on a photograph of the Queen taken in July 1951 by renowned Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh. The same photograph was used to create the portrait engraving of the Queen for the 1954 Canadian Landscape series of bank notes—the first series issued after Her Majesty’s coronation. While her tiara was not included in the portrait for that series, the Bank wanted to do something unique for the commemorative note. This marks the first time that Queen Elizabeth II is shown wearing any type of crown on a Canadian bank note. As is the case with all depictions of the Queen for previous Canadian bank notes, the metallic portrait image used on the commemorative $20 note was approved by Her Majesty.Metallic Symbols - The metallic symbols include the Queen’s monogram surmounted by the St. Edward's Crown. “E II” refers to Elizabeth II and “R” is for Regina, meaning “Queen” in Latin (read more about the Royal Cypher). The garland of maple leaves was inspired by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Emblem for Canada. The maple leaves in the emblem rising up in a wreath formation represent Canada’s provinces and territories. These various symbols were adapted for use as holographic features.A Historic Reign - Text that reads, “A HISTORIC REIGN • UN RÈGNE HISTORIQUE” is repeated across the top, centre and bottom of the large window. This text sometimes appears in reverse to be legible from the other side of the note.The Bank of Canada Released this video describing the features of the 2015 commemorative note: NOTES:In this auction, you are purchasing 5 (FIVE) x Uncirculated $20 Commemorative "Queen Elizabeth's Historic Reign" banknotes issued by the Bank of Canada.
