The First National Bank Of Wibaux in Wibaux county Montana has an interesting history, which makes this coin very desirable. From 1906 to 1935 the First National Bank of Wibaux printed over $180,000 of U.S. currency. While a small amount overall this bank has a place in U.S. history of being a National Bank that printed currency. What makes this coin so unique is that they chose Canadian currency to advertise their 60 year anniversary. With further research we might be able to find out why this was done. Very few of these coins exist. This is the only one that I am aware of. There could be others in circulation, but I have not seen any in coin shows or online auctions.
Note: The above sticker is in excellent condition. When viewed at an angle the gold lettering and black background are clear and crisp. The high gloss finish of the sticker picked up a reflection from the flash.
