- First appearance on a Canadian coin. This is the first Canadian legal tender coin to feature Métis Nation leader Louis Riel (1844-1885), and the first to feature the Michif language.
- Celebrate Métis history and culture through art. From the looped form of the Métis sash to the beaded coat, this inspiring design seamlessly fuses art, symbolism and history. This is the first collaboration between the Royal Canadian Mint and artist David Garneau.
- A favourite with collectors, the Special Edition Proof Dollar is one of our most popular annual offerings.
