General information: 969 - 1979 Scenes of Canada Issues
Often dubbed the “multicolored series,” these notes were released beginning in 1969 in response to growing concerns about counterfeiting. The main characteristic of the design was the use of
multicolored tints beneath the dominant color. Known as “rainbow printing,” this process subtly merges two or more colors into each other, making them difficult to fake.
Unlike the preceding issues, these notes do not bear the same date of issue for all denominations, but rather the year in which the printing plate was produced. Originally, all denominations were to depict Queen Elizabeths portrait, from a 1962 photograph
by Anthony Buckley, engraved by George Gundersen of BABN.

However, the minister of finance requested the inclusion of portraits of former Canadian prime ministers to enhance national identity. Initially the prefixes consisted of two letters, the first being the denomination indicator, and the second being the series letter.
During the Lawson-Bouey (signature 7) period, the prefix changed to three letters, the first indicating the printer, the second indicating the denomination, and the last being the series.
