New $10 note touches aboriginal, gender and Quebec bases

The Canadian mint has taken no chances in its design of the 150th anniversary edition of the ten dollar banknote. It touches four bases of ethnic and gender importance. There are likenesses of Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, fellow Father of Confederation (and Quebecer) Sir George-√Čtienne Cartier, Canada’s first female member of Parliament, Agnes Macphail and James Gladstone, Canada’s first Indigenous senator and a member of the Kainai (Blood) Tribe.
