Series $100 note


The 1988 $100 bill is brown and pale beige in colour. It contains a "100" on the optical device in the top left corner. It has Sir Robert Borden and the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings flying the old Union Jack flag on the face side and a Canada Goose on the back.


Official First Day of Issue: December 3, 1990

A variation on the Thiessen-Crow notes appears when the back plate number was originally printed over top of the waves in the background. Part way into the run, the waves were removed from a small rectangular window for clarity.
