This 2022 Celebrating Oscar Peterson commemorative one-dollar coin reflects the pride Canadians feel for the legendary pianist whose love of music was evident in every performance. Neatly rolled up in a sleek paper wrap including 25 uncirculated commemorative coins, this coin serves as a lasting tribute to Oscar Peterson (1925-2007) and his music. This special wrap roll includes 25 brilliant uncirculated $1 commemorative coins, all with the purple colour element. Mintage is limited to just 15,000 rolls. 

The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Valentine De Landro, the coin celebrates the life and legacy of Oscar Peterson (1925-2007), one of the greatest pianists of all time. It features a depiction of the musician seated at his piano, playing his powerful civil rights anthem Hymn to Freedom, while musical notes and chord symbols from that piece also appear in the design. On this selective colour version of the coin, Peterson’s favourite colour (purple) conveys the joy and love of music that were evident every time he played.  The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
