Canada - 1 Dollar 1917

Canada - 1 Dollar 1917
Princesa Patricia.

"The then Dominion of Canada issued the $1 denomination in many different varieties in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the previous issue to this one was issued in 1911. With the start of World War I and the entry of Canada into the conflict as part of the British Empire Canada found herself raising regiments to go and fight in the European conflict. Lieutenant-Colonel Francis Farquhar, the military secretary to the Governor General of Canada, the Duke of Connaught, asked the permission of the Duke to name a Canadian regiment in the Duke's daughter, Patricia's name. She was a very popular person in Canada, and was instrumental in the regiments founding. In 1918 Princess Patricia was name colonel in chief of the regiment, and she retained an active role in the regiment until her death at aged 88 years in 1974."

Mais uma excelente nota que gostaria de ter na minha colecção.
