"Devil's Head", 1954 series
  The 1954 Series was the third series of banknotes of the Canadian dollar issued by the Bank of Canada. The banknotes were designed in 1952 following the accession of Elizabeth II to the throne after the death of her father George VI. The banknote designs differed significantly from the preceding 1937 Series banknotes, though the denomination colours and bilingual printing were retained.
  The banknote series became known as the "Devil's Head" series, leading to design modifications for all denominations. The second variant of the series was issued in 1956.
  The new notes were introduced by Graham Towers, the Governor of the Bank of Canada, to the Parliamentary Press Gallery in June 1954, and entered circulation that September. In advertisements that ran in Canadian newspapers in September 1954, the Bank of Canada stated that design and use of two colours on the obverse were security features to deter counterfeiting.

Laurentian Mountains
The Laurentian Mountains (French: Laurentides) are a mountain range in southern Quebec, Canada, north of the St. Lawrence River and Ottawa River, rising to a highest point of 1,166 metres (3,825 ft) at Mont Raoul Blanchard, north east of Quebec City in the Reserve Faunique des Laurentides. The Gatineau, L'Assomption, Lièvre, Montmorency, Nord and St. Maurice rise in lakes in this mountain range.
Across the U.S. border to the south, the Adirondack Mountains in New York State are actually an extension of the Laurentians, although they are sometimes mistakenly included with the Appalachian Mountains.
Although one of Quebec's official regions is called Laurentides, the mountain range runs through four other regions: Capitale-Nationale, Outaouais, Lanaudière, and Mauricie. The foothills of the Laurentian range extend into central Ontario. The foothills are known as The Opeongo Hills, also commonly known as the Madawaska Highlands. The Laurentian Mountain range is one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. It contains rocks deposited before the Cambrian Period 540 million years ago. The Laurentians are the central part of the Grenville orogeny dating back to 1100-1000 mya (million years) ago.
