- About the Mint
In a land where that which is wild is revered and notions of struggle and courage are counted as the highest traits of character, Canadian hockey is a symbolic microcosm of the core tenets of the Canadian spirit. In Canada’s game, we see powerful and bold warriors taking on wild foes, each testing his or her mettle in a frozen world of ice and cold. As Canadian writer Stephen Marche has said, “Hockey is a metaphor for life in the North.” Canada’s truly unique sport and its many heroes—players, coaches, commentators, technologists, first originators, and loyal fans—are icons that hold a special place in the hearts of all Canadians.

Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco and presents a small group of individuals enjoying a pick-up game on a small local rink. In the foreground, we see the backs of a father and child, sticks over their shoulders and skates hanging from the sticks by their laces in a typical Canadian fashion. Bundled in warm coats, snowpants and toques, they walk through the snow to a small outdoor community hockey rink. In the background, other players lean against the outside of the boards, sticks held high, waiting for their turn to join the game. On the rink itself, an adult and several children are engaged in a game. The adult and one of the children wave their hands and sticks high in the air, signaling perhaps that someone has scored a goal. In the distant background, stark leafless trees rise against the wintry horizon.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized full color sleeve.
