Lower Canada One Sou, Fine

Before the introduction of the Canadian dollar, most low denomination coinage there was issued by provinces, banks and businesses. In the case of Lower Canada (Bas Canada), which corresponds to what is today southern Quebec, some of these coins were denominated as sou, a coin used in pre-revolutionary France. Between 1835 and 1852, the Bank of Montreal was one such bank. Despite being produced by the same bank over a relatively short period of time, there are small diff erences in the bouquet on the obverse side. These coins have no date but were struck between 1835 and 1838, and are available in Fine condition.
