Official First Day 25-Cent Biathlon Coin (2007)
Cheer Canada's biathletes in a unique way
The 25-cent biathlon coin has a unique collectible of its own to offer: a specially designed cover showcasing one of the first 10,000 circulation coins produced on September 8, 2006.
Imagine cross-country skiing for 7.5 (4.7 mi) to 20 km (12 mi) and having to shoot different targets along the way. Your heart is pounding. Still, you steady yourself, take aim and fire—all the while racing against the clock and your opponents. That’s the exciting and demanding sport of biathlon.
Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger)
These three words, comprising the motto of the Olympic movement, encourage the athlete in all of us to give our best during competition, and to view this effort as its own victory.
