2023 Fine Silver Proof Dollar
Kathleen "Kit" Coleman: Pioneer Journalist


This coin is part of the Proof dollars collection which began in 1971. A coin has been released every year since then.

In a time when women journalists were limited to writing about the female perspective and women’s issues, Kathleen “Kit” Blake Coleman (1856-1915) paved the way for better representation in newsrooms and a more equal standing for Canadian women in other aspects of life. The 2023 Fine Silver Proof Dollar pays tribute to one of Canada’s most successful early presswomen. A pioneer of Canadian journalism, Coleman made history by becoming North America’s first accredited woman war correspondent. She also helped establish the Canadian Women’s Press Club in 1904 and served as its first president, and later became Canada’s first syndicated woman columnist.

 A journalism pioneer and a woman of many firsts. Journalist Kathleen “Kit” Blake Coleman is honoured on Canada’s Proof Dollar in 2023, which marks the 125th anniversary of her becoming North America’s first accredited woman war correspondent.
 Features a silhouette collage that captures key moments in Coleman’s life, including: the ship that brought her to Canada; the office of the Toronto newspapers that published her columns from 1889 to 1911; and a typewriter that symbolizes her impact on Canadian journalism.
 Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, the annual Fine Silver Proof Dollar is the Royal Canadian Mint’s flagship collector coin and one of the year’s most anticipated collectibles.
 Only 35,000 coins—a lower mintage than in 2022—are available to collectors worldwide.
 Also available: The 2023 Fine Silver Proof Dollar is included in the 2023 Fine Silver Proof Dollar Set, while a selectively gold-plated version is in the 2023 Special Edition Proof Set.
