Here’s a great keepsake featuring the $10 banknote issued by the Bank of Canada in 2017 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada. The crisp, uncirculated $10 banknote, with the letter Prefix CDB, is encapsulated in a Lighthouse Stabil 156 capsule for paper money. The capsule is stored inside an elegant mohogany VOLTERRA presentation case for banknotes, featuring a glass lid. You will have the choice to display it standing or hanging from the wall (screws included). This case provides the best possible protection for a banknote that will be cherished for years to come by collectors, citizens and fans of Canada.
The commemorative $10 banknote marks the first time a Canadian woman and an Indigenous Canadian are depicted as portrait subjects on a Bank of Canada note. The design also incorporates Inuit and Metis cultural elements: a colourful reproduction of the artwork Owl’s Bouquet by world-renowned Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak; and the distinctive arrow sash pattern, an important symbol of the Métis nation.
The Canada 150 note also showcases Canada’s natural beauty on its reverse. The five different landscapes representing the various regions of Canada include the Lions/Twin Sisters in Western Canada; a wheat field in Prairie provinces; the Canadian Shield in Central Canada; Cape Bonavista in Eastern Canada; and the Northern lights in Northern Canada.
Prior to the release of the $10 Canada 150 banknote this past spring, the Bank of Canada had only issued three commemorative banknotes—one on Sept. 9, 2015, when the Queen became the longest-reigning sovereign in Canada’s modern era; one in 1967 to honour the 100th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation; and another, the first, in 1935 to mark the Silver Jubilee of King George V.
