Description

This bright and colourful $10 fine silver coin is designed for all Canadians as a celebration of the rights and freedoms we enjoy today, and as a reminder of the long path towards equality. The impetus for the coin is to mark the 50th anniversary of changes made to the criminal code in 1969 decriminalizing homosexuality, but can be equally applied to all forms of discrimination whether based on sexual orientation, gender or any other reason. It is a celebration of the hard-fought freedom to live, love and be. Mintage is limited to 15,000 coins. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:
The reverse image has been created by a Canadian artist named Joe Average. The intertwined stylization invites a personal interpretation of the design. The facial traits reflect gender fluidity and the spectrum of gender expression; they may belong to two individuals, or they may represent different aspects of one’s identity. A ray of light reflects in each eye and brings the colour image to life, bolstered by the vibrant colours of the Pride flag. The English word “EQUALITY” and the French word “ÉGALITÉ” are included on two curved bands. The frame includes the word “CANADA”, the double dates “1969” and “2019” and the denomination “10 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
