Canada honors the Queen's historic reign with a 20 Dollar commemorative banknote

Bank of Canada is commemorating the historic reign of Queen Elizabeth II with a special edition of a crisp new $20 polymer bill. 40 million of the commemorative notes will be issued starting tomorrow.

Unlike any other Canadian bank note, in this 2015 edition, the queen is shown wearing a crown.

The portrait placed in the note’s window is based on a 1951 picture by Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh about 6 months after the Queens accession to the throne.
