2023 Canada National Indigenous Peoples Day Collector Keepsake Card

In celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day, the 2023 commemorative $2 circulation coin combines the art of Megan Currie, English River First Nation, Myrna Pokiak (Agnaviak), Inuvialuit Settlement Region and Jennine Krauchi, Red River Métis.. Their joint creation stunningly combines their expressions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis cultures, art and traditions and is an open invitation to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day. You’ll find two of these commemorative $2 circulation coins — one with colour and one without — inside each Commemorative Collector Keepsake Card, where the coins appear alongside the artists’ words about their art and personal connection to National Indigenous Peoples Day.

The National Indigenous Peoples Day commemorative $2 circulation coin is the first circulation piece to feature a reverse design by three individual artists. Taking a cooperative approach, the three artists – Megan Currie, English River First Nation, Myrna Pokiak (Agnaviak), Inuvialuit Settlement Region and Jennine Krauchi, Red River Métis – actively developed the design together, weaving together their individual expressions to form a powerful ode to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis cultures and heritages.

The $2 coin’s reverse features a collection of visual elements on the inner core and outer ring, where they form expressions of Indigenous identities and cultures, as designed by Megan Currie, English River First Nation, Myrna Pokiak (Agnaviak), Inuvialuit Settlement Region and Jennine Krauchi, Red River Métis.. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.

Special features
• A beautiful celebration. National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21) celebrates the diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis; this coin is an open-ended invitation to learn more about the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis cultures, traditions and heritages that inspired its creation.
• A unique collaboration. As the creative voices of their distinct identities and experiences, three artists worked together to create a powerful, combined design – a first for a circulation coin.
• A rarity in 2023. Each Keepsake Card also gives you 2023-dated versions of $2, $1, 25¢, 10¢, 5¢ coins — a rarity in a year when these are only available as non-circulation coins (legal tender but not intended for general circulation).
• All are uncirculated coins. These coins have never been circulated: they all have a newly minted quality.
• Collect, keep and share. With 50,000 available, this Keepsake Card is a great addition to any collection. It’s also an affordable introductory piece that makes it easy to share your interest in the theme, or in coin-collecting, with others.

Packaging
The coins come packaged in a colourful, informative, ready-to-display collector card.
