In 2017 Canada celebrated 150 years of the Confederation of Canada 1867-2017. One of the ways it marked this milestone was with the issue of a 10 dollar polymer note which represented all the regions of the country and celebrated the work and lives of 4 prominent Canadians. The portraits of John Macdonald, George-Etienne Cartier, James Gladstone and Agnes Campbell Macphail appear on the front alongside a broad see through security panel. The regions of Canada are represented on the back with a view of Capilano Lake, Twin Sisters Mountain, wheatfields, the Kipana River, the coast of New Brunswick and the Northern Lights above Wood Buffalo Park. An impressive note in Uncirculated.
The people who came up with the idea of this polymer bill wanted to incorporate a piece of real gold and this is what they have done.

The note itself is polymer with the illustration of a three masted ship on the front and a lion’s head on the back.
