A very special bank note deserved a special exhibition!
Every visual element on the $10 commemorative bank note was carefully chosen to honour the 150th anniversary of Confederation. It showcased key elements of Canada’s history, our diverse culture and the rugged splendour of our land. Figures from our history, the architecture of the Parliament buildings, original works of art and photographs were just some of the inspirations for the design of this one-of-a-kind note.
This special exhibition, located in Gallery 1 of the Bank of Canada Museum, gave visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the art and technology that went into creating this special bank note.
