Product Details
In a time when women journalists were limited to writing about the female perspective and women’s issues, Kathleen “Kit” Blake Coleman (1856-1915) helped pave the way for better representation in newsrooms across Canada.

Known to her many readers as “Kit,” the intrepid reporter made history 125 years ago by becoming North America’s first accredited female war correspondent. She helped establish the Canadian Women’s Press Club in 1904 and served as its first president, and later became the first syndicated woman columnist in Canada.

Set Highlights:
  • This seven-piece set features a selectively Gold-plated version of the 2023 Proof Dollar containing 3/4 oz of .9999 Silver. All seven coins are finely crafted in various weights of 99.99% pure Silver.
  • Limited mintage of 20,000 sets.
  • Your fine Silver Proof set is presented in Royal Canadian Mint-branded book-style packaging with a removable lens for easy viewing.
  • Obverse: The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
  • Reverse: Designed by Canadian artist Pandora Young, the Proof dollar’s reverse features a silhouette of journalist Kathleen “Kit” Blake Coleman (1856-1915) holding an open notebook and pen. Within that silhouette are various elements that represent her life and career (from top to bottom): The Mail and Empire building in Toronto, Ont.; SS Circassian, the passenger ship that brought the Irish-born writer to Canada in 1884; a partial map of the Atlantic Ocean, to represent Coleman’s travels and dispatches; a view of Coleman writing at her desk; and a vintage typewriter that symbolizes her legacy and impact on Canadian journalism.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
