2022 Coloured Canada $1 Celebrating Oscar Peterson Loon Brilliant Uncirculated (MS-63)

Piano virtuoso. Jazz legend. Composer, educator and advocate. Celebrate the extraordinary life, work and legacy of Canada’s Oscar Peterson (1925-2007) and his exceptional contributions to Canadian music and culture, as well as his reputation as one of the world’s most respected and influential jazz artists of all time.

Oscar Peterson’s love of music was evident in every performance. That sense of joy, and the powerful emotions conveyed through his music, are represented by the purple colour that fills the background of this commemorative loon dollar coin.

Designed by Canadian artist Valentine De Landro, the reverse celebrates the life and legacy of Oscar Peterson (1925-2007), one of the greatest pianists of all time. It features a depiction of the musician seated at his piano, playing his powerful civil rights anthem Hymn to Freedom, while musical notes and chord symbols from that piece also appear in the design. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
