Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
He was one of the greatest pianists the world has ever seen, and Canada is proud to call him one of our own. Throughout his extraordinary six-decade career, Oscar Peterson (1925-2007)—beloved pianist, composer, educator and advocate—kept audiences spellbound through his displays of virtuosity and musicality. The Celebrating Oscar Peterson commemorative one-dollar coin is a joyous tribute to the legendary artist, and you’ll find two different versions of it in this Keepsake Card: a non-colour piece; and one with Peterson’s favourite colour, purple.

Designed by Canadian artist Valentine De Landro, the reverse celebrates the life and legacy of Oscar Peterson (1925-2007), one of the greatest pianists of all time. It features a depiction of the musician seated at his piano, playing his powerful civil rights anthem Hymn to Freedom, while musical notes and chord symbols from that piece also appear in the design. On the $1 coin with selective colour, Peterson’s favourite colour (purple) conveys the joy and love of music that were evident every time he played. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
