Canada embraces 2019 with new LGBT coin

The Canadian Prime Minister will issue new $1 coin to commemorate end of laws against gay sex!

But the Canadian government will not reveal what the coin looks like,...yet!

Go Canada!!!

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has approved a new design for Canadian currency. A dollar coin commemorating the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in the country will begin circulation sometime in 2019.

Not much is known about the coin just yet. The Royal Canadian Mint is withholding a picture of the design or the name of the artist so as to “maximize the impact of the official launch”.

Trudeau previously passed a law that would allow the records of people previously convicted of the now erroneous crime of “homosexual acts” to be expunged.
