The 1923 $2 note featured the Prince of Wales, who reigned briefly in 1936 as King Edward VIII. He is wearing the uniform for the Welsh Guards. This issue is almost identical in design to the matching 1923 $1 notes. Controversy arose because of the portrait featured on this note. In 1924, the photographer who took the picture from which the engraving was made threatened to sue for infringement of copyright. This was an oversight on the part of the Canadian Bank Note Co., and an amicable settlement was sought. The reverse features the Coat of Arms of the Dominion of Canada. These were the last $2 notes issued before the Bank of Canada was established in 1935 and became the sole note-issuing authority in Canada.
