The 2023 National Indigenous Peoples Day commemorative $2 circulation coin celebrates First
Nations, Inuit, and Métis art and cultures. You’ll find 25 of those coins in each Non-Colourized
Special Wrap Roll, and all of them share the same engraved-only (no colour) design from the three artists, who weaved together their individual expressions to to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis cultures and heritages.
While National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21) celebrates the diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada, the commemorative $2 circulation coin is an open-ended invitation to learn about and honour Métis peoples and their histories and heritages.
