The BoC Multi-coloured $50 note

BoC Multi Coloured $50 note



The 1975 $50 bill is red with a multicoloured tint. It displays an early portrait of William Lyon Mackenzie King on the face side and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride, dome formation on the back.

One of the prettiest notes I've seen.
