Obverse

Texts in English and French. On the left side, the issuing institute and the coat of arms of Canada. The portrait is that of Sir Henry Charles Wilfrid Laurier, statesman, Canada's seventh Prime Minister from 1896 to 1911 and the first Francophone to hold this position. In the center is a front view of the West Block of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa with a legend to his right. Below the legend is the note's face value "5" and above it a Canadian flag. The multicolored printing is dominated by blue/yellow.

5 - CANADA
Les hivers de mon enfance
étaient des saisons longues, longues.
Nous vivions en trois lieux:
l'école, l'église et la patinoire: mais
la vraie vie était sur la patinoire.
- Roch Carrier -
The winters of my childhood were
long, long seasons. We lived in
three places - the school, the church
and the skating rink - but our real life
was on the skating rink

Comments

Varieties :
Prefix "H" : Canadian Bank Note Company Limited
Prefix "A" : British American Bank Note Company Limited

Mention "Replacement" :
→ Notes that were issued to replace notes that were damaged or destroyed before they were put into circulation.

Printed in "2001 / 2003 / 2004 / 2005" :
→ In 2002, the Bank introduced the new $5 banknote (ISSUE OF 2002) but this note also bears the year of printing on the reverse (PRINTED IN 200X).



Knight/Dodge (Prefix: JHS) - Printed in 2001 - ULTRA RARE (Experimental banknote) :
→ "The Bank of Canada inadvertently issued a $5 note with this serial number [JHS] during a note exchange event to mark the launch of the new $5 note in March 2002. That note was part of the first print run of the Canadian Journey $5 note, and was genuine. While we cannot confirm wheather there may be more notes with the serial number prefix "JHS" in circulation, no evidence exists at this time to suggest so."

Frequencies show the percentage of Numista users who own each year or variety among all the users who own this banknote. Since some users own several versions, the sum may be greater than 100%.
