(cf Rutherford's birthday of August 30th.)

24,950,000 were printed by the British American Bank Note Company.

Artist Ray Webber produced the design using a photographic technique.
(JC It looks like the pattern obtained looking into the beam of a HeNe laser.)

Canada Post Office described the art work as a burst of light symbolising
"the great energy that the harnessing of the atom has given to us and which,
unseen, affects so much of all our lives."
