Canada 10 Dollars 2018 P-New Polymer Unc
This issue we offer Uncirculated examples of the new Canada Polymer 10 dollar bill released last year. (PNew) It is a first for a Canadian banknote. It is printed vertically. For the first time, a Canadian-born woman appears on her own on a Canadian banknote. She was Viola Desmond, a businesswoman who, in 1946, challenged racial segregation by refusing to leave a whites-only area of the Roseland Theatre. It was the most publicized incident of racial discrimination in Canadian history. The back has an illustration of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights alongside an extract from the Canadian Charter of Rights. Uncirculated.
