5 Dollars 1935

The coat of arms of Montreal in the middle.

coat Montreal

The first coat of arms of Montreal was designed by Jacques Viger, the city's first mayor, and adopted in 1833 by the city councillors. Modifications were made some one hundred five years later.

The first coat of arms was displayed on white shield, which had a red saltire with four different charges between each of the arms, representative of the four main components of the population as viewed by Mayor Jacques Viger and the city council in 1833 when the coat of arms were designed and adopted. To the top, a rose was for the English heritage of the population, the dexter a thistle for the Scots, the sinister a sprig of clover for the Irish heritage of the city and to the bottom base a beaver for the French that originally settled the territory and traded in furs.

Supporters - sitting Indians. At the top of it - the beaver. Originally performed with bright colors.

The Supporters sitting on a platform, below is the cornucopia with fruits.

On the left side - Mr. W.A. Bog, General manager of the Bank, with his signature underneath.

On the right side - Mr. C.B. Gordon, The President of the Bank, with his signature underneath.

Denominations are in all corners in numerals.

In the top corners - in Arabian numerals.

In the bottom corners - in Roman numerals.
