Bank of Canada announced a new $10 banknote in honor of celebrating the 150th anniversary of confederation. It’s set to begin circulation on June 1, 2017 and the day has finally arrived. 

The special banknote will showcase the history, land and culture of Canada. “This bank note is intended to captivate our imagination and instill pride in what we, as a nation, have accomplished,” said Governor Poloz.

For the first time, there will be four important individuals featured on the front side of the note: Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir George-Étienne Cartier, Agnes Macphail and James Gladstone.

It will also represent the first time a native Canadian and a Canadian woman are displayed on the same banknote in Canada. Here is a video with the new security features you will see on the new banknote.
