Betty and Rolly Fox, parents of Terry Fox, pose by a poster of a new $1 coin designed by the Royal Canadian Mint after they were given the first of 11 million coins that will be put into circulation April 4. The coin, depicting their son on his Marathon of Hope, was unveiled at a ceremony at SFU on March 15. Another nine million coins will be issued in September to coincide with the annual Terry Fox runs. The former SFU student is the first Canadian featured on a circulating coin. The commemorative coin marks the 25th anniversary of Fox's run. When he began in 1980, he asked every Canadian to contribute a dollar toward cancer research.
