Canada's 10-dollar note Banknote of the Year 2018

The Bank of Canada wins the award for Banknote of the Year 2018! The 10-dollar note featuring Viola Desmond (1914-1965) wins the trophy which was won by Switzerland in 2016 and 2017. No complaints here since this note was also my pick for the award (I actually nominated the note but IBNS International denied the entry because somebody beat me to it...). 

A quick overview of the winning note: "The back of the $10 bank note features images and symbols that represent Canada’s ongoing pursuit of rights and freedoms. It features the Canadian Museum for Human Rights—the first museum in the world solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. Also depicted on the note are an eagle feather—representing the ongoing journey toward recognizing rights and freedoms for Indigenous Peoples in Canada—and an excerpt from the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms."
