2015 Canada $10 Fine Silver Gold Plated Coin - 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Sir John A. Macdonald (TAX Exempt) - 130630

As Canada prepares to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017, the Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the nation's primary architect and first Prime Minister: Sir John A. Macdonald.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel features a selectively gold plated portrait of Sir John A. Macdonald. Presented standing beside a desk, Sir John A. Macdonald gazes charismatically out from the image-taking much the same pose he would have stood for in Prime Ministerial photos of his day. In his right hand he holds a sheet of paper, showing that he is hard at work tackling the task of nation-building. His left hand rests casually on the table top beside him.
