Q:

How much is a Canadian two-dollar bill from 1986 worth at the bank?

A:

A 1986-issue Canadian $2 bill is worth just face value at the bank while carrying a slight premium from collectors. Rare variations of the bill have sold for at least $10,000 at auctions.

The unique feature that increases the bill's value involves the signature change on the bottom front of the bill to reflect the incoming Bank of Canada governor and deputy governor. While bills bearing the Thiessen-Crow signature combination were supposed to replace the Crow-Bouey prints beginning with serial number AUK 164000, some made it into the production of the earlier series. According to the experts at Coin Week, only five such bills have been confirmed to exist.

    Who is on the Canadian dollar bill?

    Canada no longer uses a dollar bill, as the Royal Canadian Mint now issues coins in its place. The coins entered circulation in 1987 and feature a portrait of Queen Elizabeth on the obverse and a bird called a loon on the reverse. Therefore, many call the coins "loonies."
