1996 Canada's $2 Proof Coin & BRX Replacement Bank Note Set


Designed to replace the $2 bank note, the new bi-metallic $2 coin was issued on February 19, 1996. Featuring the polar bear, it continues the wildlife theme tradition preferred by Canadians.



The reverse of the coin presents an adult polar bear in early summer, hunting along the edge of an ice floe in proximity of the coast. He is paused, frozen in his tracks, concentrating on a distant movement of fresh scent.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This image appears on all Canadian circulation coins.



The 1986 note face features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II updated and enlarged for this series, a small engraved vignette of teh Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, and the Coat of Arms of Canada. The note bears the signature of Mr. Gordon G. Thiessen and Mr. Bernard Bonin, Governor and Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada, respectively. The back features two robins against a stylized sky incorporating the word Canada.

This is a new $2 bank note printed for the Bank of Canada. The 'X' in the third position of the alphanumeric serial number denotes that this note is the replacement for one which did not meet the high quality standards set by the Bank. As such, replacement notes rarely enter circulation.



This set comes in original cardboard packaging and certificate of authenticity.

Mintage 30,000
Face Value $2 - Coin, $2 - Bank Note
Signatures Thiessen / Bonin
