Dora de Pédèry-Hunt (1913-2008) was regarded as Canada's foremost medal designer and sculptress. Among her designs are the dollar coin and a cast medal of Norman Bethune presented by Prime Minister Trudeau to Mao Tse Tung in 1973. She received the J. Sanford Saltus Award Medal for 2003, the American Numismatic Society's prestigious medal for signal achievement in the art of the medal.
