As part of the fight against money laundering and organized crime, the $1,000 denomination was withdrawn by the Bank of Canada for circulation in 2000.
It is however being reintroduced in 2008 under the stewardship of Bank of Canada Governor elect Mark Carney.
The new $1000 note will commemorate Canada’s 18th Prime Minister, The "Right Honorable" Brian Mulroney. An important feature of the new Brian Bucks is that it will carry all the normal security features, with the exception of those pesky serial numbers. This should facilitate its widespread use.
The new bill is best used in a brown paper bag.
