Canadian Journey Series $10 Note

The face of the $10 note features a portrait of Sir John A. Macdonald engraved by Jorge Peral and a vignette of the Library of Parliament. The theme Remembrance and Peacekeeping is illustrated on the back. A male veteran stands with a boy and a girl observing a cenotaph on Remembrance Day. In the background, a male master corporal from the Land Forces and a female officer from the Naval Forces keep watch. A female Air Force officer in a peacekeeping role appears in the centre of the note. Beside the poppies in the lower left corner are lines from Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae’s poem, In Flanders Fields and its French adaptation, Au champ d’honneur, by Jean Pariseau. Issued in January 2001, this note was the first in the series.

An enhanced $10 note that includes the same security features as the high-denomination notes in the series was issued in May 2005.
