Bank of Canada 1973 $1 BCS Choice UNC 64 Original BC-46Aa Lawson-Bouey Replacement Note
As a result of rampant counterfeiting during the period from 1969 forth as well exhaustion of the prefix letter combinations, newer multicolour issues having advanced security features were printed which reduced counterfeiting in the years to follow. The traditional promise "will pay to the bearer on demand" was replaced by the words "this note is legal tender" reflecting that government paper currency could no longer be redeemable in gold. Contrary to previous issues, the prefix were no letters we no longer in a fractional form rather the denominational letter appeared first followed by the series letter. All letters except I, O and Q were used as series letters.
