* 1912 – Dominion of Canada issues first $5 bill, replacing the $4 one.(The Dominion of Canada issued five dollar bills for the first time in 1912. Many collectors see these notes and think they are incomplete because they do not feature a portrait. Each note has a simple vignette of a train. The train is the Ocean Limited and it is traveling on the Intercolonial Railway through the Wentworth Valley in Nova Scotia.

Upon Confederation in 1867, the name Canada was officially adopted for the new Dominion, which was commonly referred to as the Dominion of Canada until after World War II.)
