    Hey, my dad's friend brought over a 1 dollar canadian bill, and a 2 dollar canadian bill. Both canadian currency which is no longer made. I was wondering how much these are worth? I'm not selling, maybe put them up in a frame on the wall. Pics are below. Thanks

    They probably arent worth much more than they would have been back when they were legal tender. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Looks like maybe 1967?

    Try a coin dealer...

    Personally I'd say they are worth nothing more than face value right now.

    Circa 1967 from the looks of it. There were at least two more versions of the $2 bill before it was phased out and at least one newer version of the $1 bill. I preferred the bills to the coins...

    Think of this, how much is an American 2 dollar bill worth? /me coughs "face value" most likely anyway. Not to say you shouldn't hold onto them for the future.
