Poor Coin

The Royal Canadian Mint made a dime, one year, to commemorate women who volunteer. This coin mocks the individuals who have given labour for local recognition and charity rather than remuneration. This taunting is carried by the coin, noting on the very object that they were not given, the virtues of their labour.

It places a profile of women on the opposite side of the queen, relegating the volunteers to tails” in any coin toss. They should have been paid rather than punished in public display.
