Redditor Dazzle6957 shared a photo online of a 25-cent Canadian bill his waiter friend received as a tip at a restaurant.

The bill is from July 2, 1923, and comes from a time when Canadian currency was backed by gold. The bill reads “The Dominion of Canada will pay on demand,” referring to gold. Canada abandoned the gold standard on April 10, 1933, nearly 40 years before then-President Richard Nixon did the same for the United States.

However, the bill isn’t worth 25 cents today. According to CanadaCurrency.com, the Canadian 25-cent note is now worth somewhere between $5 and $100.
