The reverse design by Lisa Thomson Khan marks the 40th anniversary of the National Anthem Act, which designated O Canada as the national anthem of Canada. An engraved musical staff with the opening notes of O Canada is the focus, with a cluster of maple leaves to remind us that this is Canada's song.

Did you know?
  • O Canada was first performed on June 24, 1880—100 years (almost to the day) before it became our national anthem.
  • Composed by Calixa Lavallée, O Canada quickly became popular in the province of Quebec. The original French lyrics by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier are the same ones we sing today.
  • While the melody has always been the same, several English versions of O Canada were introduced prior to 1980. The most recent change came in 2018, when "in all thy sons command" was modified to "in all of us command" to ensure gender parity.
