This amount of $11,200 represents the engraving cost of seventy thousand $1,000 coupon bond tints furnished by the Canadian Bank Note Company in 1951. There are fifty coupons attached and the bonds would be available only for replacement bonds of the long-term twenty-five year issue of January 15, 1953. The bonds are of no further use and the Bank of Canada has asked that they be allowed to advise the bank note company to destroy them.
I suppose that one may say, by hindsight, that it was unnecessary to order them.
