This Wednesday, Monique LeBlanc, the Bank of Canada’s regional director of currency, will be at the Saint John City Market to showcase the forthcoming $10 commemorative banknote that will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
The event will be held May 10 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Saint John City Market—between Java Moose and Pete’s Frootique—on 47 Charlotte St. in Saint John, N.B.
The note was unveiled by the Bank of Canada on April 7 in Ottawa.
“This bank note is intended to captivate our imagination and instil pride in what we, as a nation, have accomplished,” said bank Governor Stephen Poloz, who added the note showcases Canadian history, land and culture. “It celebrates the natural beauty and majesty of our land and some of the important parliamentarians who helped shape our great country.”
