  1. Nope. But I will buy them off you!! Seriously, no joke. Collect them just cause they are neat, I’ll give you $3.00 for them.

  2. Frame them so you’ll never be broke?

  3. If the bills are creased with damaged corners the value will not go up too much.

  4. I had a the two dollar bill that would be worth something today however someone stole it out of the photo album.

  5. Got a $1 Bill? Take a Closer Look At It

    One of the most exciting finds you can have as a paper money collector is coming across a rare $1 Canadian bill. Since $1 bills were discontinued in 1989, they are exceedingly unique and can fetch up to $350.

    As with all collectibles and antiques, the value depends on the bill’s condition and rarity. So you want to ensure any bills you have aren’t yellowed, dog-eared or torn.

    BUT there is a major notable $1 bill in Canada. Launched in 1954, it’s dubbed The Devil’s Face bill due to some people thinking that the Queen’s hair on the bill looked sort of like a devil’s face. They were taken out of circulation but some still remain in Canada.
    Some estimates peg the value of these rare bills at $7,000 each! Not too shabby.

    Even more interesting is that the Devil’s Face replacement notes are themselves quite valuable. According to some specialists, the 1954 run of these notes can be worth as much as $7,000 (for the $20 bill) and as low as $3,000 (for the $1 bill). Talk about a valuable find for notes that don’t even contain the Devil’s Face!

  6. I remember exactly where I was the first time I was handed back a toonie instead of a 2 dollar bill. I was 11 but felt like such a grown up lol

    Sadly, it’s the same as all Canadian currency- worth nothing.

  8. Graham Frost Graham Frost says:

    Wasn’t the $2 bill switched with the toonie in the early 90’s?? I remember paying with $2 bills all the time as a kid but switched to the toonie mid elementary school. Dunno when the loonie came out personally. Money that’s no longer in circulation isn’t work much. Now if Canada ended as a country they would be very valuable.

  9. I’ll give you 50 cents for the lot

  10. Kathleen Rae Kathleen Rae says:

    Nope nothing more than face value.

  11. Shelley Lohr Shelley Lohr says:

    Hang on to them seal them up and maybe your great great great great grandkids may get something but you have $3

  12. Ron Klatt Ron Klatt says:

    Top one is worth a dollar, bottom is worth 2.

    Maybe collectors may find alternative values but unlikely

  13. Gonna depend on serial numbers,condition and signatures

  14. I have the whole set of bills and coins all behind glass hanging on to it someday it will be worth a lot I collect money from all over the world friends help who travel a lot bring me back some.

  15. Dana McVey Dana McVey says:

    They still hold original value unless your thinking collectors then no.

  16. Lexci Krahn Lexci Krahn says:

    Craig collects them!

  17. Only if consecutive bill serial numbers, pristine condition with way more than one

      Georgette Popoff Exactly. I’ve got a roll of uncut $1 bills from the 1960s that I’m hoping will be with something one day.

    • Yes. Pristine. Paper money grading is brutal. Those above would not grade very well at all. That coupled with the fact the they really aren’t that old makes them worth face value. No value to collectors.

  18. Yes. $1 and $2 respectively.

  19. Adam Dee Adam Dee says:

    Yep. They’re worth $1 and $2 respectively.
