Acerca de


The 18th Edition of the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Government Paper Money was released at the Canadian Numismatic Association convention in Calgary, July 21-23, 2005.

A substantial addition has been made with this edition, in the form of a new section which describes, illustrates and prices Depression Scrip issued by struggling Canadian municipalities in the 1930's. This is the most comprehensive such listing available to collectors. New listings keep the catalogue up to date with recent issues and modern insert note discoveries. A substantial number of new entries have been added for many "short" series of the 1954 and multicoloured notes, whose issues were sharply truncated as a result of signature, design or technical changes. With the current emphasis on collecting "changeover" prefixes, the premium attached to such notes is significant.

Brisk collector demand has resulted in significant price increases in virtually all areas of the hobby. Isolated cases of oversupply has inevitably brought about some reductions, but these are very few indeed. Dominion of Canada notes continue to move ahead broadly, although for some issues only the higher grades have been affected. The ever popular 1912 $5 "Train" notes, however, have again continued their advance in all grades.

The prices for Bank of Canada notes leave no doubt that they enjoy a very healthy demand. Once again the magnificent notes of the 1935 issue have climbed to new levels. Among the lower denominations the increases are limited to higher grade notes, while high denominations show increases across all grades. Prices increases for the 1937 notes are mainly restricted to the highest grades, although selected notes, including the Osborne-Towers $50 and $1,000 notes, show more general increases.

Once again, the "star" performers have been the asterisk, "X" and insert replacement notes. For the scarcer prefixes, price increased of 25 per cent and higher are not at all unusual, and some values have doubled. There is one instance (the 1954 $1 prefix *N/Y in EF condition) of an increase of 275 per cent, as collectors find this note exceedingly difficult to locate in the highest grades. In another case (the 1986 $5 insert note in prefix GOV, uncirculated) the increase shown is a full 300 per cent! Some of the regular notes have also gained ground, including the 1954 Devil's Face notes in AU and Uncirculated condition, although several other notes have retreated slightly where there are too many on the market. Specimen notes, mostly obtained from the Bank of Canada sales, likewise exhibit upward pressure on prices in nearly all cases. Special serial number notes have, in the main, also moved forward (quite sharply in some cases), as have the error notes, although more selectively in the case of the latter.

The 18th Edition of the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Government Paper Money is the most comprehensive and informative of its kind on the market today. The only guide to offer the collector a clear insight into the happenings of the Canadian Government Paper Money market. The 18th Edition of Canadian Government Paper Money is available from Numismatic dealers, bookstores, large chain stores, collectables stores, and internet bookstores such as, and Barnes& The Canadian Government Paper Money 18th edition, is also available from the publisher at the cover prices listed plus postage.
