Bank of Canada values and prices of 2001 and 2002 banknotes
In 2001, the Bank introduced the new $10 note from the Canadian Journey series, followed by the $5 note in 2002.
Notes in the new series are distinguished by new and enhanced security features to help fight counterfeiting and a tactile feature to help the blind and visually impaired identify the different denominations.
The new notes are the same size and retain the same dominant colours as previous bank note series. The Queen and the prime ministers shown on the new series are depicted on the same denominations. However, new portraits were engraved for both security and aesthetic purposes.
