Kathleen “Kit” Coleman: Pioneer Journalist - Pure Silver Proof Set (2023)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

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 woman 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.

“Kit” Coleman is honoured on the 2023 Proof Dollar, and you’ll find an enhanced version of it in this seven-piece set. Each coin—one of every denomination, even 50 cents—has been meticulously crafted in 99.99% pure silver. But the unmistakable star of the set is “Kit” Coleman herself, whose portrait is part of the gold-plated collage on the coin’s reverse.

Own a selectively gold-plated version of the 2023 Proof Dollar honouring “Kit” Coleman.
