Commemorates a Canadian tradition!

The Grey Cup® game, the championship of Canadian professional football, is the country’s single largest annual sporting event, attended by thousands and watched by millions every year. We are proud to commemorate the truly Canadian icon that is the Grey Cup with a limited edition proof silver dollar.

When the Right Honourable Albert Henry George Grey, the 4th Earl Grey, became Canada’s 9th Governor General, wanted to leave a mark on the country’s sporting landscape, he donated a namesake trophy, Lord Grey’s silver chalice, to Canada’s Rugby Football Championship, the precursor of the Canadian Football League™(CFL).

This silver dollar is an ideal gift for someone you know who is a fan of the CFL as they will enjoy and admire the coin for years!

• Your coin celebrates the 100th Grey Cup game that will be played in Toronto in 2012.
