Several types of money circulated in Canada in the 1800s. The various currencies were based on either the imperial sterling system (pounds, shillings and pence) or the colonial decimal system (dollars and cents). Banks and companies issued their own money and long remained opposed to the issuing of notes by the government. The value of some notes was indicated in both pounds and dollars.
