Sport is more than an athlete, more than a team. Sport is a community, a country. It brings us together, makes us proud, and fills us with hope. Celebrate Team Canada and our athletes' achievements with the 2014 Lucky Loonie.
In what is now a legendary tale, a loonie was embedded at centre ice prior to the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City to bring good luck to Canada's gold medal-winning men's and women's ice hockey teams.
In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mint created the first lucky Loonie as a way of passing on its special magic to Canadian athletes as they departed for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.
