$2 Canadian Bank Note Valued at $15,000+

Eleven years after the Bank of Canada discontinued the two dollar bill with the Royal Canadian Mint’s Toonie, some of the older notes can be worth a huge premium over face value. The unique feature of this note comes down to the signature and prefix combination on the note.

The Thiessen-Crow signature combination was intended to begin with $2 note AUK 164000 to replace the Crow-Bouey signature. However, notes with the Thiessen-Crow signature have been discovered in series AUG to AUN. Notes with the prefix AUH are extremely rare with Thiessen-Crow signatures.

To date, there are only five known $2 notes with the AUH Thiessen-Crow combination, and this is the finest known example graded by PMG as Almost Uncirculated.

The 1986 AUH $2 series note will be hitting the auction block on September 28, 2012 through Geoffrey Bell Auctions in Toronto Ontario at the Toronto Coin Expo.

This means they have no value (other than their face value). Coin shops try to sell them at $5 because they’re trying to make $$ on others ignorance. Our local coin shop owner has informed us to just cash them in the bank or give them away to nieces or nephews as a novelty item.
